The 50th Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards) will air on Sunday, but fans don’t have to be near a TV to watch it. CBS will also livestream the ceremony so everyone can see their favorite country stars live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
If you’re watching on television, just tune in to CBS at 8 p.m. EDT to watch the 2015 ACM Awards. Viewers who want to watch the live-stream of the show, will have to sign up for CBS All Access. The program, similar to HBO Now, is available via the network’s website or its mobile app. While the on-demand service typically costs $5.99 a month, new users can try it for free for one week.
Even those who decide to watch on television may want to have a mobile device nearby to vote for awards in two categories. Voting for the New Artist category will end at 8 p.m. EDT, right as the show starts. However, fans can vote for the Entertainer of the Year until 10:45 p.m. EDT. They can cast their votes on the CBS website.
Those who tune into the show will see plenty of country stars, and Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will co-host for the third year in a row. With so many famous nominees, fans can expect all of the biggest stars in country music to be there. Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, Eric Church, Martina McBride, Reba, Florida Georgia Line and numerous others are scheduled to attend – but it isn’t just country stars who attend the ACM Awards.
"The Voice" judge Christina Aguilera (who is currently guest starring on “Nashville”) will perform. Nick Jonas also will hit the stage with Dan + Shay. Former country star turned pop star Taylor Swift will make an appearance as will rock star turned country artist Steven Tyler. At such a big event, there are sure to be some surprise appearances too, so tune in for the 2015 ACM Awards online or on CBS at 8 p.m. EDT on Sunday.
