Although the Academy of Country Music Awards will look a bit different this year, that doesn’t mean the biggest names in country music won’t be recognized.

Keith Urban will take the stage as host of the 2020 ACM Awards, which are being held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, this year instead of the usual location in Las Vegas. The show will not include a live audience but will feature a star-studded lineup of performers.

Country Music’s Hottest Hunks

Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and many others will perform at the Opry. Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett and more will appear on the Ryman Auditorium stage. Lastly, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and many others will sing at the Bluebird Cafe.

As for the nominees, scroll through the full list below. Early winners were announced on Monday, September 14. Winners will be bolded as they’re announced during the show on CBS on Wednesday, September 16, at 8 p.m. ET.
