Eric Church & The Band Perry Star In The ‘Road To The ACM Awards’

The Academy of Country Music has tapped the New Solo Vocalist of the Year, Eric Church, and the New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, The Band Perry, to document their trip to the Academy of Country Music Awards in the “Road To The ACM Awards” series, exclusively available now on CBS.com. “Road To The ACM Awards” features their journeys leading up to the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will be broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Sunday April 3rd at 8:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network.

Eric Church and The Band Perry follow in the footsteps of artists who have participated in the “Road To The ACM Awards” series as newcomers, who have gone on to achieve success in the country music industry, including Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum.

“As we’ve been paving our road to the ACM awards over the past year our family has grown to include everyone who has helped us create, share and enjoy Country music,” said The Band Perry. “Thanks for walking this road with us!”

“While I always think it's dangerous for anyone to follow me around with a camera, I look forward to showing the fans what it's like preparing for the ACMs,” shares Church. “And I thank them again for giving me this opportunity.”

“Eric and The Band Perry are the perfect acts to feature in such an intimate way,” said Lisa Lee, SVP of Creative and Media Production for the Academy. “Each has personality to spare, and they have an amazing connection to their very loyal fan bases. I am certainly interested in seeing where they take us in these webisodes on their way to Vegas.”
