The Academy of Country Music has announced performers for the free and open-to-the-public 2013 ACM Experience, which is taking place during 'The Week Vegas Goes Country' leading up to the 48th Annual Country Music Awards. This year, the musical acts include Jewel and Easton Corbin.

Joining them will be Katie Armiger, Jerrod Niemann, Danielle Peck, Tate Stevens, Charlie Worsham, Blackberry Smoke, Love and Theft and other sought-after country music acts. It sounds like Vegas will certainly be going country, and there will be no shortage of cowboy boots and ten-gallon hats at this festival!

Fans will not only be able to see some of their favorite bands at the ACM Experience -- they'll also get a sneak peek at Jewel's new Lifetime movie, 'Ring of Fire,' and enjoy a live acoustic performance from the 'Foolish Games' hitmaker.

The event will take place April 5-7 at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas as it joins the ACM Party for a Cause Festival, culminating in the 3rd Annual Fan Jam and Post-Awards concert, headlined by the one-and-only 'Wheelhouse' singer, Brad Paisley.

The 2013 ACM Awards will air starting at 8PM ET on CBS Sunday, April 7.
