Brad Paisley Rehearses for ACM Awards; Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan Meet Press

Lady Antebellum was not the only high-profile country act present at AT&T Stadium Friday.

Fellow performer Brad Paisley was also on site, and he too rehearsed on stage. Like Lady A, Paisley is one of many superstar country acts set to perform at the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony, which takes place this Sunday evening.

Long the co-host of the fall Country Music Association Awards, Brad Paisley does not fill that role at the annual ACMs. That honor will instead go to Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, who return as co-hosts of this year’s CBS broadcast.

Also performers at the show, the two country radio powerhouses met the press — and did an interview with Nancy O’Dell — Friday.

CBS’ photos of Paisley’s rehearsal and of the Shelton-Bryan press dealings follow.

CBS’ 50th Annual ACM Awards ceremony airs Sunday beginning at 8PM ET.
