The soundtrack to Madden NFL 17 will probably be officially released on Aug. 23, and contains 40 tracks from artists in just about every genre. A number of nation acts are featured around the lengthy playlist, which includes Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Brantley Gilbert, Higher Valley, Cale Dodds and Goodbye June.

While playing the virtual football game, gamers will hear Shelton's "Straight Outta Cold Beer" off his most recent release, If I'm Sincere, Gilbert's "It's About to have Dirty" and Aldean's current single, "Lights Come On." Higher Valley's energetic "Young Forever," Dodds' "Acting Our Age" and Goodbye June's "Oh No" will also be integrated.
The country acts on the soundtrack are listed inside a versatile lineup that also consists of two Chainz and Young the Giant, amongst other people.

Meanwhile, Aldean was lately announced as a performer at the 2016 ACM Honors, that will air for the initial time on CBS on Sept. 9 from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
Aldean will likely be honored using the Triple Crown Award, which is offered to an artist who has won New Male/Female Vocalist on the Year, Male/Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer in the Year. Aldean won Entertainer with the Year earlier this year, and he was previously honored using the New Male Vocalist of your Year in 2005 and Male Vocalist in the Year 2012-2014. The Triple Crown Award has been awarded to six artists inside the past: Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Mickey Gilley, Merle Haggard, Barbara Mandrell and Carrie Underwood.

In addition to Aldean's performance, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Cam, Maren Morris, Cole Swindell, Keith Urban and hosts Lady Antebellum will take the stage during the event. Each act is set to give a tribute performance to the event's previously-announced honorees.
