Keith Urban is preparing for his first-ever hosting duties at the forthcoming 2020 ACM Awards.
The singer was announced as the host for the 55th edition of the awards, which was originally slated to be held earlier this year in Las Vegas, before it was rescheduled as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“What my hosting duties are gonna be, I’m still working on right now,” Urban revealed in a recent interview with Taste of Country Nights. “We’re still piecing this all together.”
The event will now be held in a mostly audience-less ceremony in venues across Nashville, Tennessee, including the Grande Ole Opry, the Bluebird Cafe, as well as the Ryman Auditorium.
“So what’s great about this is, even though a lot of people won’t to be able to come — and obviously we can’t have people in the audience — there’s going to be a lot of people around the world that get to see these places that have never seen them before,” he continued.
The 2020 ACM Awards are slated to be broadcast live on Wednesday, September 16 between 8:00 and 11:00 PM E.T on the CBS Television Network.
