Lexington native Broadway star-turned-country singer Laura Bell Bundy will perform on the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 18.
Bundy will perform her song Giddy On Up at the ceremony, to be broadcast live from Las Vegas at 8 p.m. on CBS, reports People.com. Giddy On Up is the first single off Bundy's upcoming country album, Achin' and Shakin', which comes out April 13.
"I want to make (my performance) interesting and entertaining," Bundy told People. "We'll be in Vegas so I want to do a little Cirque du Bundy — some tightrope walking, light myself on fire, real live horses."
Bundy, who turns 29 on April 10, is a Lexington Catholic High School graduate. She was nominated for a 2007 Tony Award for best actress in a musical for Legally Blonde: The Musical.
