The upcoming 2020 ACM Awards have been postponed, the Academy of Country Music announced on Sunday, March 15.

“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. 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,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, in a press release.

The show, previously scheduled for April 5, will be postponed until September. The exact date has yet to be revealed. The show will air on CBS as previously scheduled. No word yet on if Keith Urban will still host and perform during the celebration.

Refunds for tickets purchased for the ACM Awards and ACM Party for a Cause® events, including ACM Lifting Lives® Topgolf Tee-Off and ACM Beach Bash will be refunded.
