American Country Countdown Awards hosts Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line will have plenty of country company – and a few Hollywood stars – onstage with them to hand out honors at the genre’s newest trophy-fest later this month, reps for the show tell PEOPLE exclusively.

Presenters from the country world will include Kix Brooks, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery, Kip Moore, Chris Young, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell and newcomers Maddie & Tae.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans will get a glimpse of actor Terry Crews presenting on the show, while devotees of The Walking Dead will recognize actress Emily Kinney. NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and Miss America 2015 Kira Kazantsev will also present at the show, which will air live from Nashville on Monday, Dec. 15, at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

Categories for the awards are determined based on statistics and radio airplay charts (including Brooks’s syndicated American Country Countdown radio show), so most awards are pre-determined, although fans can vote for breakthrough artist through Dec. 10 by using their favorite new artist’s Twitter handle, the term “Breakthrough Artist” and #ACCAwards in a Tweet.
