We’re going to have to wait a lot longer to find out who wins this year’s ACM Awards. The Academy of Country Music just announced they’re delaying this year’s award show until September, with the program still airing on CBS. The ACM, featuring host Keith Urban, was supposed to take place April 5th from Las Vegas.
“The ACM Awards is a tentpole event for our Country Music industry, and the Academy of Country Music and dick clark productions went to great lengths to find a safe solution for the show to go on so that we can honor our artist community,” Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, announced in a statement. “This decision involved many partners, stakeholders and the industry who we have been in constant conversations with over the past several days as the situation has developed.”
He adds, “We look forward to identifying a future date that we can celebrate with our Country community safely.”
All events surrounding the ACMs have also been canceled, including ACM Party for a Cause, ACM Beach Bash and more. Information on how to get refunds will be available on the ACM website.
