Academy of Country Music Awards postponed because of coronavirus


The Academy of Country Music Awards, originally scheduled for April 5, have joined a growing list of events to be pushed back or canceled altogether because of the coronavirus.

“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,” said the ACM Awards in a press release obtained by Fox News.

The event has not yet been rescheduled. Keith Urban was slated to host.
