ACM Announces Radio Awards Nominees

The Academy of Country Music has announced the full list of radio awards nominees for the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards. The full list of Radio Award nominees will not be televised due to time constraints during the live telecast from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 8 p.m. ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network. Instead the awards will be presented during the ACM’s Party For A Cause event at The Joint, on Saturday, April 1 in Las Vegas.
