The ACM Awards—originally scheduled for April 5 in Las Vegas—may have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Academy of Country Music is putting together a two-hour TV special to temporarily fill the void.
The Academy, in partnership with Dick Clark Productions, will air ACM Presents: Our Country on April 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. The two-hour special will feature conversations and at-home acoustic performances from many of your favorite country stars, along with clips of their favorite moments from the ACM Awards 55-year history.
Participating artists will be announced in the coming weeks. Artists will appear from their homes via video chat to share their thoughts and perform acoustic songs. Additionally, video clips from previous ACM Award broadcasts will allow viewers to reminisce with them about their favorite ACM moments.
ACM Presents: Our Country will broadcast during the time slot previously scheduled for the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards, which have been postponed to air on CBS in September at a date, time and venue to be determined.
