The 2020 ACM ceremony was originally scheduled to take place in April, but was delayed due to the pandemic.

Instead of a traditional show, awards will be presented virtually, while performances will take place at three iconic Nashville venues: the Grand Ole Opry House, the historic Ryman Auditorium and the famed Bluebird Cafe.

Country superstar Taylor Swift will be taking to the stage to perform “betty” from her new album folklore, marking the first time she sings at the event in seven years.
