The 55th Annual ACM Awards will air April 5th on CBS, live from the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. 

With so many concerts and events being canceled due to the coronavirus, ACM has assured folks they plan to go on with the show. “We are closely monitoring the situation along with the MGM team, who are in continuous contact with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Southern Nevada Health District, and other agencies and experts for guidance,” reads a statement from the ACM. “We will take every precaution to ensure the safety of our artists, staff, crew, guests and attendees.”
