It’s a big night for country music! The 52nd annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards take place Sunday, and the biggest stars will be there to present, perform and accept awards. Luckily, you don’t have to be in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena to watch the show. You can view the ACM Awards on TV or online.
For those who prefer TV, the 2017 ACM Awards will air on CBS. Be sure to tune in Sunday, April 2 at 8 p.m. EDT. While the east coast will get the live broadcast, it’ll be tape delayed for the west coast.
Xfinity TV subscribers will get an extra performance. Kelsea Ballerini will sing her new song “High School,” and it will be available immediately after the show On Demand.
“I wrote the song ‘High School’ right after I put out my last record, ‘The First Time,’ and I’ve always felt like it was a really important and special song. I’m so excited to debut it with my friends at Xfinity at the ACM Awards,” said Kelsea Ballerini said in a press release. Behind-the-scenes content from Ballerini’s preparation for the ACM Awards will also be available via Xfinity On Demand.
Those watching online can tune in on CBS’ website. CBS All Access allows you to live stream the show, which is hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley. Plans start from $7.99 a month, but new users can sign up for a weeklong free trial to watch the ACM Awards live stream for free.
While the ACM Awards can be watched online or on TV, the ACM Awards red carpet is only being broadcast on Twitter. Celebs like Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Miss America Savvy Shields and more are expected to show off their fashion sense before the show, so fans won’t want to miss it. Watch the @ACMawards Twitter account at 6 p.m. EDT/3 p.m. PDT to see the ACM Awards red carpet show.
