BREAKING: Academy Of Country Music Awards Postponed

The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards, which was scheduled to air live on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, April 5 from Las Vegas, has been postponed and will be rescheduled to air on CBS in September, at a date, time and venue to be determined.

“The ACM Awards® is a tentpole event for our Country Music industry, and the Academy of Country Music® and dick clark productions went to great lengths to find a safe solution for the show to go on so that we can honor our artist community. This decision involved many partners, stakeholders and the industry who we have been in constant conversations with over the past several days as the situation has developed. We look forward to identifying a future date that we can celebrate with our Country community safely,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.

Refunds will be issued for tickets purchased for the ACM Awards and ACM Party for a Cause® events, including ACM Lifting Lives® Topgolf Tee-Off and ACM Beach Bash.

Keith Urban was recently named as host for the event, which includes top nominees Dan+Shay, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, and more.
