Taylor Swift will return to the ACM Awards stage for the first time in seven years, when she performs from Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House as part of the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sept. 16. The global superstar will offer the world premiere performance of her song “betty,” from her new album folklore, which has spent six weeks atop the Billboard 200 Albums chart, tying Swift with Whitney Houston for the most cumulative weeks atop the chart by a woman in history.
Swift is a two-time ACM Entertainer of the Year winner, and has earned nine ACM Awards during her career.
For the first time in the show’s history, the awards will take place in Nashville, broadcasting from three iconic country music venues: Grand Ole Opry House, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, and The Bluebird Cafe. As previously announced, the 55th ACM Awards will also feature performances by Jimmie Allen, Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Riley Green, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Old Dominion and Thomas Rhett featuring Jon Pardi, Blake Shelton featuring Gwen Stefani, Tenille Townes, Carrie Underwood, Morgan Wallen, Trisha Yearwood, and more to be announced.
