The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM), hosted by Keith Urban is set to broadcast live from Nashville for the very first time in history on Wednesday September 16, 2020 at 8pm EST on CBS! This milestone event is the first ever awards show to broadcast from three iconic venues in Nashville - The Grande Ole Opry House, The Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.
Hosted by the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, and 15-time Award winner, Keith Urban, this show is sure to be one for the ages!
“While we were disappointed to postpone our April show in Las Vegas, we couldn’t be more thrilled to host the rescheduled 55th ACM Awards in the home of Country Music for the first time in the Academy’s history,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “First and foremost, we want to ensure the safety of our artists and industry, and to ease the burdens of traveling large teams; therefore, we decided to bring the ACM Awards to them this September in Nashville. Now, more than ever, is the time to bring our community together to honor the best in our genre, and there is no more special place to do that than three of the most revered venues in Country Music - The Grand Ole Opry House, The Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe. A huge thank you to these historic venues and to the state of Tennessee and city of Nashville for all of the support in making this a reality!”
