ACM Nominees Announced Feb. 27

Final nominees for the 36th annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be announced Feb. 27 at 9:30 a.m. PT at the Sheraton Universal in Los Angeles. Last year, the nominations press conference was held in Nashville during the annual Country Radio Seminar. Due to logistical problems, the ACM opted to return the announcement to Los Angeles, an ACM rep told No word yet on which country artists will make the announcement. The awards show, set for May 9 at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles, will be carried live on CBS.
