The A-list squad of presenters was also revealed on Tuesday, including stars like Katy Perry, Maren Morris, Shay Mitchell, Zedd and Pharrell Williams.

The awards show — now in its sixth year — will also honor Brooks with the first-ever iHeartRadio Artist of the Decade award. The country superstar, 57, is the number-one selling solo artist in U.S. history.

Meanwhile, Keys, 38, will take home the iHeartRadio Innovator award and Halsey, 24, will be presented with the 2019 Fangirls award, which “recognizes a female artist who has pushed boundaries with her music and message while inspiring her fans,” according to a press release.

Taylor Swift will also receive the iHeartRadio Tour of the Year award for her smash Reputation Stadium Tour. The “Delicate” singer’s record-breaking 2018 tour became the highest-grossing tour by a woman, with two million tickets sold in the states and $266 million in sales.

Cardi B, Drake, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Maroon 5 and Imagine Dragons all have multiple nominations at the awards show, which will be hosted by T-Pain and air live on Thursday at 8 p.m EST on Fox.
