Sheeran, who is in the midst of his “+ - = ÷ x” (Mathematics) World Tour following the release of his studio album “-,” is slated to add “an electrifying moment” to the 58th annual ACM Awards on Thursday evening (May 11), the Academy announced. Sheeran is the latest among a star-studded list of performers who will take the stage during the highly-anticipated show, shortly after appearing on American Idol with country giant Luke Bryan.

Garth Brooks is set to host the show with legendary country artist Dolly Parton, a recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee who will debut the lead single on her forthcoming rock album, called “World on Fire.” Parton recently said on GMA that “it’s really kind of about the times and how we can do a little better if we try–to try to heal the divide and just get along a little better. And so, it’s really got a great message to it, but it’s also good and solid–kind of like a rock anthem.”

The 58th ACM Awards will take place at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas. It’s set for Thursday, May 11 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT/5 p.m. PT.
