CBS is going all out to make the Academy of Country Music Awards an event this Sunday.
Producers have lined up major talent to get viewers to tune in on a very competitive night, when the competition includes "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones."
The marquee events:
Hunter Hayes will join Stevie Wonder for a performance. Hayes also will debut the single "I Want Crazy."
Kelly Clarkson, the first "American Idol" champ, will sing "Don't Rush."
George Strait and Garth Brooks will sing together for the first time to honor the late Dick Clark. The singers will be introduced by Reba. (R.A. Clark, Dick's son, is an executive producer on the awards telecast.)
Jewel will sing "Hands" and "Fill a Heart" to raise awareness of child hunger in the United States.
