The country star also dropped his first new song of the year, "God Whispered Your Name."
Keith Urban had a lot to celebrate on Thursday (Feb. 27). The reigning ACM entertainer of the year winner announced that he'll be hosting the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards. The 55th annual show will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 5 on CBS and the gig will mark Urban's first run as host.
“As if having a new song out today wasn’t enough, I also get to host the ACM’s in April,” said Urban in a statement, which also revealed his first new song of the year, "God Whispered Your Name," a soulful, emotional acoustic ballad. "I’ll tell you - this year already feels like the most creative and energized year of my life... and there’s so much more to come. Incredibly grateful - and ready to roll!”
