AceShowbiz - The Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) has been rescheduled for September after being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Singer Keith Urban had been due to host the prizegiving at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on 5 April but, after U.S. President Donald Trump declared the Covid-19 outbreak a national emergency earlier this month, organisers decided to pull the plug on the event.
It has since been confirmed that the show will now take place on 16 September with representatives from ACM and Dick Clark Productions adding that the venue would be revealed soon, along with an initial list of performers, reported Variety.
The announcement indicates that the show may not take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, as it has for several years. However, 15-time ACM winner and recipient of the 2018 Entertainer of the Year honour Urban remains booked as host.
