Keith Urban is bringing a bit of rock & roll to the Academy of Country Music Awards! Urban will be hosting the 53rd annual ACM Awards which airs this Wednesday at 8/7c. Along with his hosting duties, the singer will be picking up the mic with fellow artist P!nk to debut their new collaboration.
The ACM Awards are back! No, they're not being held in Las Vegas with all your favorite singers in the audience. But, after months of delays, they will be held in Nashville, with Keith Urban hosting a virtual ceremony tonight on CBS. Artists, including Taylor Swift will be performing on one of three famous Nashville stages for a first-of-its-kind award show! Our Nashville correspondent Sam Alex is giving a preview of the big night ahead.

The Country Music Association released the nominations for The 54th annual CMA Awards this morning. This unique year comes with many record breaking surprises from some country legends.
The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards aired on Wednesday night in an unconventional way. For the first time ever, the show broadcasted without a live audience in Nashville, the home of country music. The show ended in an unexpected way with a tie between two country megastars vying for the biggest award of the evening.
