Keith UrbanLindsay Ell and High Valley have all been announced as part of the first round of performers set to take the stage during the Canadian Country Music Awards, which will take place on Sept. 9 and broadcast nationwide from First Ontario Place in Hamilton, Ontario.

Urban's latest album, Graffiti U, has topped off Canadian all-genre charts, and the country singer has 10 Canadian stops planned during his 2018 Graffiti U World Tour. For her part, Ell recently earned the first No. 1 single on Canadian country radio charts by a female in more than a decade with her song, “Criminal." High Valley, the duo of brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel, have been Canada's darlings for several years, and are currently making their break into the U.S. country music scene. In the U.S., they ramped up their fan following in a big way after they scored a spot as an opening act for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on the duo's co-headlining Soul2Soul Tour. Additionally, the boys will be hitting the road with Old Dominion later this year.

Country music legend and native Canadian Shania Twain will host the 2018 CCMA Awards on Sept. 9. The veteran performer released her latest album, Nowin 2017, and will be on her 2018 Shania Now Tour in support of that project through early August.

Tickets for the 2018 CCMA Awards are on sale now, with multiple package options available, including -- as of today -- special gold and platinum package options. Single tickets and packages can be purchased online.
