How to Watch the 2020 ACM Awards

The day has finally arrived. After a months-long delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 55th annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be going virtual on Wednesday night (Sept. 16), hosted by Keith Urban.

For the first time in the awards show’s history, the ACMs will be broadcast live from Nashville, with socially distanced performances from the Grand Ole Opry House, the historic Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.

Fans can catch the ceremony on September 16 live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET (delayed for the West Coast). The show will also livestream via CBS All Access (currently offering a 7-day free trial). The event is produced by dick clark productions, which shares a parent company with Billboard.

Nine-time ACM Award winner Taylor Swift, will return to the ACM stage for the first time in seven years to perform the country-leaning fan-favorite track from folklore, “Betty.” Meanwhile, 15-time ACM Award winner Urban and Pink will deliver the world television premiere of their brand new collaboration “One Too Many.

Other performers include Trisha Yearwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Mickey Guyton, Tim McGraw, and Blake Shelton featuring Gwen Stefani. All five nominees for entertainer of the year — Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett — will take the stage to perform a medley of their greatest hits.
