Here is some of the information that you need to know right now. The red-carpet pre-show is set to formally begin at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time or 3:00 p.m. Pacific, which is a couple of hours prior to the official start of the country-music show. The stream is going to be available courtesy of the official Twitter page for the Academy of Country Music. Even if you don’t have a Twitter account, rest assured that you can still use that in order to see some of the biggest stars in the genre arrive and speak out.
For those who are wondering, there is no official live stream for the ACM Awards other than CBS All Access, which is the official streaming home for all things related to the network’s programming. Any other stream you may find for the show is unauthorized so view at your own risk.
The goal for this year’s award show is effectively the same as every other year before it: To try and entertain in however way possible. This is not a political awards show so much as it just is a chance to hear some music and maybe a little bit of banter between some country-music stars. Reba McEntire is hosting the show this year, which should bring a tough of levity and high energy to the proceedings. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Alan Jackson, and Keith Urban are among some of the most notable performers. For Underwood in particular, there is a lot of buzz since this marks her first television performance since she suffered a pretty serious injury that required numerous stitches and a long recovery time.
We’ll have a little bit more insight on the show tonight as it goes along, so be sure to stay tuned!
