The Academy of Country Music Awards won’t let social distancing stop the show. Instead of hosting all country’s hottest artists in one place, the 55th annual ACM Awards are going all over Nashville, and fans can watch all the country crooners take the stages online and on TV.
The 2020 ACM Awards air Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. EDT on CBS. The three-hour show will be broadcast on TV on the CBS channel, and the live stream will be available for CBS All Access subscribers to watch.
Now that country fans know how to watch, they’ll need to know who to expect to take the stages at several iconic Nashville venues, including the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Café. Taylor Swift announced she’d return to the ACM Awards for the first time in seven years to perform “betty.”
In addition to Swift, other performers include Jimmie Allen, Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Riley Green, Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Thomas Rhett featuring Jon Pardi, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, Tenille Townes, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban with Pink, Morgan Wallen and Trisha Yearwood.
Since the show was supposed to take place in April, nominees were announced in February. These nominated country artists have been waiting a long time to find out if they’re winners. Five categories, including Best New Artists, Video of the Year and Songwriter of the Year, have already had winners announced. See the full list of 2020 ACM Awards nominees below:
