The 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards has a new date.
Hosted by Keith Urban, the 55th ACM Awards will take place Sept. 16 on the CBS Television Network, organizers announced Monday (March 23). CBS All Access will stream the rescheduled event live and on-demand, though it remains unclear where the annual gala will take place.
The new date replaces the awards ceremony at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, which was originally-slated for April 5. That show date was moved as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As previously announced, a new special ACM Presents: Our Country will fill the now-vacant spot, for a night “filled with entertainment, hope and reflection,” reads a statement, “bringing the healing power of music to Americans at a time when they need it most.”
