Additionally, Variety has reported that there will be an “all-star” tribute to the late Loretta Lynn. They speculate the tribute will be during a medley honoring other musicians who have also passed away in the last year.

It’s unclear who will be involved in the Loretta Lynn tribute, but several female country stars have confirmed their attendance of the ceremony including Kelsea Ballerini and Carly Pearce – who has a tribute song called “Dear. Miss Loretta.”

While the country awards are usually given during a ceremony before the televised one, this tribute will definitely getting us tuned in to the live broadcast!
