Official news came Monday morning (4/27/2020) that the postponed Academy of Country Music Awards would be moved to Nashville from Vegas.

Country Aircheck writes, Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards will broadcast live from Nashville Wednesday, Sept. 16 on CBS.

The Academy, Dick Clark Productions and the network postponed the show, originally set for April 5 in Las Vegas, as COVID-19 forced widespread shut downs.

The new date will incorporate performances from the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Cafe; Keith Urban will host. A decision on whether audiences will be present will be made later. This is the first time the show has been held in Nashville.'” (Country Aircheck)
