The show will feature more then 30 performances from the 25 scheduled artists, each of which will take place across Nashville in three iconic venues: the Ryman Auditorium, the Grand Ole Opry and the Bluebird Cafe. The show, which typically takes place in Las Vegas, will mimic last year’s socially distanced celebration. More details about the scheduled performances will be released in the coming days.

The ACM Awards will be hosted by Keith Urban for the second consecutive year and he will be joined by New Female Artist of the Year Mickey Guyton.

The 2021 ACM Awards broadcast live on Sunday, April 18 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
