Ashley McBryde performs at the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards on April 18, 2021 in Nashville.

Ashley McBryde made a splash at the 2021 ACM Awards on Sunday (April 18), performing her 2020 single "Martha Divine" on a floating stage.

The country star and her band lit up the Cumberland River as they rocked out to the track, which starts out with an affair and ends with a murder. “You're bound for Hell/ But evidently the Devil's busy/ So I moved you up in line/ Martha Divine,” McBryde sang, smirking at the camera during the more ominous lyrics.

"Martha Divine" appears on McBryde' fourth studio album Never Will, released in April 2020.

Jimmie Allen, Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Kenny Chesney, Dan + Shay, Mickey Guyton and many more will also be performing tonight. Check out the full ACMs winners’ list here, and keep checking back at Billboard.com throughout the night for updating coverage.

The ACM Awards are produced by Dick Clark Productions, which is owned by MRC. MRC and Penske Media are co-parent companies of Billboard.
