Some of you may be wondering, what’s the difference between the CMA and the ACM awards? The Country Music Awards are based in Nashville, where theAcademy of Country Music Awards are on the west coast. When the ACM was first initiated, their biggest goal was to promote country music in the western states. Every year since it was founded in 1964, they honor and showcase the biggest names and emerging talent in the country music industry.
This year the ceremony will be televised live in Las Vegas on April 2 to recognize male and female vocalists, albums, videos, songs and musicians. While most of the winners are kept hush hush until they’re crowned on April 2, a few winners have already been announced!
Who are they? Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and Jon Pardi have been named New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, New Female Vocalist of the Year and New Male Vocalist of the Year, respectively. These wins are the Brothers Osborne, Morris and Pardi’s first ever at the ACM Awards! Major congratulations to them!
While all three of these early announced winners are also scheduled to perform at the award show, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town and Florida Georgia Line with the Backstreet Boys will also be hitting the stage!
It’s A Star-Studded Event!
