Last week, members of the Academy of Country Music made the smart and safe decision to postpone the 55th annual ACM Awards that was supposed to take place April 5th from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and air on CBS. Although the show has been rescheduled to Wednesday, September 16th, you can still watch your favorite country artists perform on April 5th as CBS will air ACM Presents: Our Country in the same time slot as the award show.
Due to the current state of the country, all the performances will take place in the artists’ homes, respecting the quarantine and practicing social-distancing. Confirmed performers include Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brandi Carlile, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Old Dominion, Thomas Rhett, Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and more! Duet performances include Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani and Kane Brown and John Legend who will debut their new song “Last Time I Say Sorry”.
The show will honor the late, 10-time ACM Award winner Kenny Rogers with performances by Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, and Darius Rucker. The TV special will feature clips from past ACM Awards broadcasts as well.
ACM Presents: Our Country will air on CBS from 8 PM to 10 PM ET.
The Hero Collection by NYCountry Swag is inspired by the men and women of the Fire, Police and Military Departments across the country. A portion of sales from each purchase is donated to different foundations that support our heroes. We are dedicated to honoring their service and remembering their sacrifice.
