Hold on to your hats, country fans. The performers are set for the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards this month.
Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Toby Keith, Wynonna Judd, Carly Pearce, Dan + Shay, Hardy, Jelly Roll, Kane Brown and show hosts Little Big Town will hit the stage to play their best-known hits at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. The two-hour show will air on NBC and stream on Peacock starting at 8 p.m. ET. It also airs at 8 p.m. PT.
Keith and Judd also will receive career honors that night — the Country Icon Award, and the Country Champion Award, respectively. The People’s Choice Country Awards recognize the biggest and best of country music, chosen entirely by fans.
The NBCUniversal outlets say the telecast will spotlight the rich connection between country music and the Opry through chart-topping musical performances, genre-bending collaborations, tributes and surprise moments that regularly happen from the iconic venue.
NBCUniversal announced the country music spinoff of the People’s Choice Awards back in March.
