Time: 8:00 p.m.
Where: Garden Arena at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas
Host: Reba McEntire
On Sunday, April 15th, Reba McEntire returns as sole host of the ACM Awards live from Las Vegas. No stranger to the bright lights of the entertainment capital, McEntire has been in residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with fellow country superstarsBrooks & Dunn since 2015, with their next group of shows set for mid-August. McEntire’s participation as an ACM Awards co-host stretches all the way back to 1986 when the show originated from California’s Knotts Berry Farm theme park and the singer’s Number One smash “Whoever’s in New England” inspired her first-ever music video.
Co-hosting that year with Mac Davis and John Schneider, McEntire would take her first solo flight as host in 1999, then again from 2001 to 2010, as the show moved from L.A. to Vegas. Blake Shelton would join her as co-host in 2011 and the following year before Luke Bryan, and then Dierks Bentley, would step into the role.
The 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards™ take place Sunday. Here’s how you can watch the ACM awards via live online stream or TV as country music superstarhosts the annual awards show.
The ACM Awards will be broadcast live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15 on CBS at 8/7c.

McEntire has hosted the awards show 14 times since the late 1980s. She last hosted “country music’s party of the year” in 2012 along with Blake Shelton. McEntire, who announced the nominees for major categories on “CBS This Morning” last month, learned on the air that she was nominated for the 16th time in the female vocalist of the year category.
She said she’d like to thank “everybody who voted for me and my mama” for the nomination.
