ACMs postpone awards show
Sunday, March 15, 2020
– The Academy of Country Music Awards announced today that it was postponing its awards from April until September due to the coronavirus.
"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," said ACM CEO Damon Whiteside. "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."
The 55th awards show was slated to be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on CBS April 5. Ticket refunds will be issued for the awards show as well as the April 4 ACM Lifting Lives Topgolf Tee-Off and ACM Beach Bash.
The date and venue for the rescheduled 55th ACM Awards telecast are to be determined
