The 2015 ACM performers are announced -- Aaron Tippin gives us a look at 25 years in the biz with a double album, and you'll never guess what pop star influenced Thomas Rhett's latest.

FOX News Radio Entertainment Correspondent, Michelle Pollino has the scoop on the Country music stars making headlines this week:

FOX Country. 

I'm Michelle Pollino.

Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert are just a few of the stars set to hit the stage at the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards co-hosted by Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton in their 3rd year together-- Garth Brooks, Florida Georgia Line and more will take part in the show which airs live on CBS, April 19.

Aaron Tippin is not only the hardest working man in show biz he's the fittest... so, when he released his latest March 3rd, you knew it was gonna be big and it is. The double disc set includes 10 of his biggest songs, including "There Ain't Nothin' Wrong With the Radio", and covers of The Georgia Satellites' "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" and Al Green's "Let's Stay Together".

Thomas Rhett told Rolling Stone Country, he's obsessed with Bruno Mars. Rhett recently recorded Mars' ballad "When I Was Your Man" and previewed four of his latest songs telling Country Weekly, he's definitely been inspired by his more funky, soul side.

That's FOX Country on FOX News Radio.
