2012 ACM Awards: Live stream the Fan Jam event with Scotty McCreery

Ready for the show?

The 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards are airing Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on CBS, but in addition to the show itself, we now have an opportunity to showcase some additional performances hosted by the Zac Brown Band.

In the video below, you can check out a live stream for the show’s 2nd annual Fan Jam event, which will be at Mandalay Bay Events Center, just down the road from where the show will be held at the MGM Grand. The concert will happen both during and after the main show, and will feature performances from all three Best New Artist nominees — including an “American Idol” favorite in Scotty McCreery. The trophy for this award will be given away during this event, so there’s going to be some major awards action going on here, as well.

Check back later in the night, as we will have a winners’ list for the entire broadcast as it happens over the course of the night; in addition, we will be featuring some of the best performances from the show as a whole on Monday morning.

Are you excited to watch the show this year?
