The date of the 47th Annual ACM Awards has been announced. You can see Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton host the festivities live on April 1 at 8 pm on CBS from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. And of course, the ACM Fan Jam will air intermittently throughout the show. Who’s headlining the big Fan Jam this year?
Country Music’s Party of the Year will feature Reba and Blake Shelton’s hilarious banter alongside ACM Fan Jam headliner Zac Brown Band! No word on who will be joining Zac Brown at the Mandalay Bay but we’re guaranteed a huge show! Last year, Sugarland headlined the 1st Annual ACM Fan Jam!
Tickets go on sale for the ACM Awards and the ACM Fan Jam on Wednesday, January 25 at 1pm ET via Ticketmaster.
Also, while country stars are flocking to Vegas, the Academy of Country Music will host an all-star special called ACM PRESENTS: Lionel Richie and Friends – A Lifetime of Hits. Lionel Richie will perform his own hits plus an array of Richie covers provided by Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers and many more.
No word on the air date for the Lionel Richie special, but it will benefit ACM Lifting Lives.
