Garth Brooks, Kacey Musgraves To Perform On iHeartRadio Music Awards

Garth Brooks, Kacey Musgraves, Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Halsey, and John Legend are the first round of performers announced for the upcoming 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, to be held March 14 on FOX. Airing live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the sixth annual iHeartRadio Music Awards will also air live on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and iHeartRadio, the all-in-one digital music, podcast, on demand and live-streaming radio service.

Taylor Swift will be honored during the show with the iHeartRadio Tour of the Year award for her Reputation Stadium Tour. With over 2 million tickets sold in the U.S. and grossing $266 million, it is the highest-selling U.S. tour in history by any artist. The Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour broke Swift’s own record for highest-grossing tour by a woman. The tour, which kicked off in May 2018 in Glendale, Arizona, also traveled to Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia and was made into a special concert film for Netflix. Swift will be in attendance to accept her award.

The 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards will again celebrate the fans, giving iHeartRadio listeners the opportunity to decide winners in several new and established categories. Fan voting will determine this year’s Best Fan Army presented by Taco Bell; Best Lyrics; Best Cover Song; Best Music Video; the Social Star Award; Best Solo Breakout; Cutest Musician’s Pet; and the first-ever Song That Left Us Shook and Favorite Tour Photographer awards. Social voting will close on March 7. Fans can vote on Twitter using the appropriate category and nominee hashtags or by visiting iHeartRadio.com/awards.
