ACM Awards 2020: Where and what to watch about the Academy of Country Music Awards


The 55th annual Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) is upon us again, but this time things will look different than in previous years.

Keith Urban is set to host the show for the first time since the show moved from Las Vegas amid the Keith Urban pandemic, and favorite artist Nash will give live hits from Tenay.

This year ACMs are also running without an audience, but this does not mean that fan interaction will not be effective.

To honor at least ‘daughters’ in the 7th year, several awards were performed in their first country.

Fans watching at home can expect who can watch Country Music standouts, such as Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Ken Brown, Kelsa Ballerini, Taylor Swift and others including Urban, Pink, Blanton Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Carrie with. Underwood, Trisha Yearwood, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Dan + She, Luke Coombs, Tim McGraw, Maran Morris, Old Dominion and Thomas Ratt featuring John Pardy.

The performances this year are different in the sense that they will take from three different locations in and around Nashville, each with its own unique history, including the Grand Ole Opry House, the historic Raman Auditorium, and The Bluebird Cafe.
