Another country superstar, Reba McEntire, is confirmed to host the festivities, marking the 11th consecutive year that she’s hosted the black-tie event. Also making another trip is David Foster, who returns to serve as musical director. Carson Palmer, Dr. Francis Yeoh, Yank Barry and the Argyros family will all be honored alongside Underwood.

Award recipients from years past include Halle Berry, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin, Robert De Niro, Kevin Costner, Magic Johnson, Jim Carrey, Forest Whitaker, Donald Trump, Clive Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Evander Holyfield.
