    Troy Aikman, Tony Romo and Jason Witten are among the presenters at the Academy of Country Music Awards at AT&T Stadium.

    One former and two current Dallas Cowboys will take to the stage at the 50th Academy of Country Music awards show Sunday at AT&T Stadium.

    The all-star affair will take place at the home of the Dallas Cowboys so it's only fitting Troy Aikman, Tony Romo and Jason Witten would have a part in the show.

    Burleson's own original "American Idol" Kelly Clarkson, "American Sniper" Chris Kyle's widow Taya Kyle and Dr. Phil McGraw will also present Sunday along with a host of other celebrities.


    Despite a fire on Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott's bus Thursday in North Texas, the country group is among the performers at the star-studded event Sunday, along with George Strait, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan to name a few.
