CBS will air a special concert on Sunday, April 5 at 8 p.m. ET in place of what was originally slated to be the ACM Awards. That ceremony was pushed back to the fall due to the coronavirus, so in its place will be a star-studded country concert during which musicians will perform from their homes.

The show is called "ACM Presents: Our Country," and on Thursday the lineup for the show was announced.

Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton with Gwen Stefani, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Kane Brown with John Legend, Brandi Carlile, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Old Dominion, Thomas Rhett, Shania Twain, and Keith Urban are all performing.

There will also be a special tribute to Kenny Rogers.

"Although the highly anticipated 55th ACM Awards show is unable to take place on April 5th due to the health crisis, we still wanted to deliver fans an entertaining ACM Country Music special as planned," Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, said. "We are thrilled to announce ACM Presents: Our Country, an all-new special that allows fans to connect with their favorite Country artists and to relive some of the greatest moments of the ACM Awards, all from the comfort and safety of their own homes."

"Music has always served as a powerful form of hope and solidarity during challenging times," Amy Thurlow, President of Dick Clark Productions, said. “It’s our privilege to offer audiences an uplifting message through music as well as a look back at some of the best moments in ACM Awards history."

Staying Safe

Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
