For the first time in history, the ACM Awards are coming to Music City. The Tennessean reported Monday that this year’s ACMs have been rescheduled for Nashville on September 16 due to the coronavirus pandemic after they were originally set for April 5 in Las Vegas. Even more exciting, the ceremony will be broadcast live from three, separate Nashville venues: the Ryman Auditorium, Bluebird Cafe and Grand Ole Opry House. “Being in Music City allows us to honor a rich legacy,” said ACM CEO Damon Whiteside at Nashville Mayor John Cooper’s Monday press conference. He also said it’s yet to be determined if a live audience would be a part of this year’s broadcast.
The ACM Awards will air at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 16, on CBS.
