ACMS RETURN TO NASHVILLE
2/16/21

The 56th Academy of Country Music Awards will head back to Nashville on 4/18 and will be broadcast from three legendary venues: the Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Café.

In returning to “our  normal awards cycle,” ACM CEO Damon Whiteside said, “a huge thank you to the city of Nashville, Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and Bluebird Cafe for welcoming us back to Nashville, where we can look out for the safety of our artists while shining a spotlight on this vibrant city after a tough 2020.”

Performers, collaborations and more will be announced in the coming months. CBS will air the three-hour show; it will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

COVID-19 Guidelines set by national, state and local health officials will be closely followed and implemented during the production along with additional safety measures to be instated by show producer dick clark productions and the Academy of Country Music.

The charitable arm of the ACM, ACM Lifting Lives will donate $25,000 to the Music City, Inc. foundation for their Nashville Christmas Day Explosion Relief Fund, with funds earmarked for local musicians out of work due to damage to venues.

“The impact of the explosion was felt throughout the music community, and we hope this donation can help alleviate some of the burden on the community,” said ACM Lifting Lives Executive Director Lyndsay Cruz.
