ACM Awards to Open With Medley From Eric Church, Carrie Underwood + Entertainer of the Year Nominees
The 2020 ACM Awards will open with an all-star performance from the Entertainer of the Year nominees. Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett will start Wednesday night's (Sept. 16) CBS broadcast.
Billboard shares that the five nominees for the night's top prize will perform a medley of their own hits at the very beginning of a show that will feature nearly two dozen performances. Keith Urban is going to host the show from the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, while other performances will originate from the Bluebird Cafe and Ryman Auditorium.
With just two days to go, additional performances continue to be announced. Taylor Swift was announced as a performer on Sunday (Sept. 13). She'll sing "Betty," and Urban and Pink were also announced as performers during a separate part of the show.
