NASHVILLE (AP) - Country music's biggest stars are turning out for a salute to Merle Haggard.

Miranda Lambert and George Strait will team up to perform a tribute medley of Haggard's hits during the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 6, and Garth Brooks will present the singer-songwriter with the academy's Crystal Milestone Award. Songs Lambert and Strait will perform include "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down" and "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive."

The academy also announced Friday morning that The Band Perry will open the show with a performance, Hunter Hayes will perform for a child hunger charity campaign, and Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line will team with Nitro Circus Action Stars, an action sports troupe.
