    Although the Academy of Country Music Awards will look a bit different this year, that doesn’t mean the biggest names in country music won’t be recognized.

    Keith Urban will take the stage as host of the 2020 ACM Awards, which are being held at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, this year instead of the usual location in Las Vegas. The show will not include a live audience but will feature a star-studded lineup of performers.
