Carrie joins a long list of ACM performers, including Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett--just to name a few.

"The Champion" singer makes her return to the spotlight following a mysterious few months, during which she's kept out of the public eye after a November "freak accident" on stairs outside her home in Nashville.
