BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Academy of Country Music has officially postponed the 55th ACM Awards, which were scheduled to take place in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 5th, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement released Sunday, the Academy said the decision to postpone "involved many partners, stakeholders and the industry who we have been in constant conversations with over the past several days as the [COVID-19] situation has developed."
The ACM Awards will now happen in September, although the exact date and time has not yet been chosen. Keith Urban is still expected to be the host.
"We look forward to identifying a future date that we can celebrate with our Country community safely," Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy said in the statement.
The statement said ticket holders can monitor the ACM website and social media accounts for information on how to claim a refund.
