Keith Urban To Host ACM Awards, Drops New Single

Keith Urban will host this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony.

Known as country music’s “Party of the Year,” the event will honor the biggest names and emerging talent in the country music industry.

The awards show will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 5 on CBS.

Urban, ACM Entertainer of the Year and 15-time ACM Award-winner, will be hosting the ACM Awards for the first time.

The news of Urban’s hosting duties coincides with the release of his new song, titled “God Whispered Your Name.”

“As if having a new song out today wasn’t enough, I also get to host the ACM Awards in April,” said Urban. “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.”

“We are thrilled to have our reigning Entertainer of the Year as the centerpiece of our 55th ACM Awards ceremony,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.
