ACM Presents: Our Country is just days away from premiering! The two-hour special is set to air on CBS on Sunday (April 5) with a host of performances by country music’s biggest stars.
Viewers can tune in at 8:00 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on CBS, as well as via CBS All Access (free trial available here).
“The country music community came together in an incredible way – and very quickly – for Our Country, and that outpouring of immediate artist support led us to develop a digital pre-show so that we could include even more artists in the country music celebration Sunday night,” said Academy of Country Music CEO Damon Whiteside in a statement. “This allows more artists to share the positive messages of support and togetherness with the fans.”
While the pre-show will feature the likes of Lauren Alaina, Lee Brice, Ingrid Andress and more, the acoustic special will include performances by country heavyweights such as Kelsea Ballerini (“Homecoming Queen?”), Tim McGraw (“Humble and Kind”), Brandi Carlile (“The Joke”), Miranda Lambert (“Bluebird”) and others.
Chris Young is also set to honor the late Joe Diffie, who passed away March 29 after being diagnosed with coronavirus, with a special performance during the digital pre-show, while Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and Luke Bryan will pay tribute to Kenny Rogers with a medley of the late icon’s songs. The pre-show will stream on April 5 at 7 p.m. ET/6 p.m. CT on ACM Facebook page and Amazon Music on Twitch.
