Keith Urban to Host ACM Awards for the First Time on April 5

The Academy of Country Music announced that Keith Urban will host the 55th ACM Awards on April 5 in Las Vegas.

This will be Keith’s first time hosting the ACM Awards.

“As if having a new song [“God Whispered Your Name”] out today wasn’t enough, I also get to host the ACMs in April,” said Keith. “I’ll tell you—this year already feels like the most creative and energized year of my life . . . and there’s so much more to come. Incredibly grateful—and ready to roll!”

A carousel of artists have hosted the show in recent years, including Reba McEntire (2018–2019), Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley (2016–2017), Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton (2013–2015), Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton (2011–2012) and more.

The ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 5 (live 8–11 p.m. ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network and be available to stream live and on-demand across digital platforms on the CBS All Access subscription service.
