Although the Academy of Country Music Awards looked a bit different this year, that doesn’t mean the biggest names in country music weren’t recognized.
Keith Urban took the stage as host of the 2020 ACM Awards, which were held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, this year instead of the usual location in Las Vegas. The show didn’t include a live audience but featured a star-studded lineup of performers.
Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood and many others performed at the Opry. Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett and more appeared on the Ryman Auditorium stage. Lastly, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and many others sang at the Bluebird Cafe.
