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.

If Taylor weren't reason enough to watch, P!nk is performing too! She's doing a special performance with host Keith Urban. Let's just hope she doesn't try to climb up the Grand Ole Opry building!
