ACM Awards moving to Dallas stadium in 2015, Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will host again
Sunday night was the live broadcast of the 49TH ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS. At the event the current owner, President and General Manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, announced the new venue for the award show in 2015. This will be The 50th anniversary of “Country Music’s Party of the Year,” and it will be broadcast LIVE from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas Sunday, April 19, 2015 (8:00-11:00PM, live ET/delayed PT) on CBS.
“For our 50th Anniversary, we wanted to invite more fans than ever to our party,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “Tickets to the ACM Awards sell out in minutes, country fans make their vacation plans around our events. In 2015, we’ll celebrate with the biggest group of mega artists at ACM Party for a Cause and allow more music fans to experience the Awards by hosting it in the premier stadium in the country.”
“We couldn’t be more thrilled about the ACM Awards coming to AT&T Stadium next year. It will be the first event of its kind at the home of the Dallas Cowboys. The stadium was built to hold world-class events such as this, and it doesn’t get any bigger than the ACMs. The excitement from fans across the country, our great fans in Texas and this venue will provide the biggest and best stage available to showcase country music and its stars to the world,” said Jones.
“I won my first ACM in 1984, and to see a landmark event like the ACM Awards move to one of the biggest venues in the country to create a historical country music experience of this magnitude, it is a testament to the fans,” said George Strait. “I am thrilled to have been a part of the announcement of this milestone event coming to my home state of Texas.”
ACM Award winners Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will return to co-host this super-sized night of incredible country music performances.
