About the Show

  • The 49th annual ACM Awards aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas April 6 on CBS. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan returned as co-hosts for the star-studded evening. Additionally, Florida Georgia Line hosted the ACM Fan Jam which took place simultaneously at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Live performances from the fan jam were featured during the ACM Awards.

    ACM award nominees were selected by members of the Academy of Country Music, and winners were chosen in this manner, except for entertainer of the year and new artist of the year. Winners in those categories were determined by fan voting.
