How To Watch ACM Awards

USA Today reported that the ACM Awards will be free to stream live exclusively on Amazon Prime Video and Twitch’s Amazon Music channel.

This year’s ACM Awards will be hosted by the country music legend Reba McEntire. She has hosted the show sixteen times in the past.

“I am tickled to pieces to get to host the ACM Awards for the 17th time!” said McEntire, 69, according to Rolling Stone.

“What an honor to have been part of the past, present, and now the future of the Academy of Country Music with Amazon Prime Video,” she added. “I can’t wait to get to Texas and see everybody May 16th!”

McEntire Loves Hosting The ACM Awards

McEntire made it clear that she loves hosting the ACM Awards. That’s exactly why she keeps coming back.

“You get to go have fun with all your friends and buddies that you’ve gotten to know over the last 45, 50 years in the business and meet new people,” she said, according to Wide Open Country.

“It’s the best place to get to meet the new artists, and that’s what I really enjoy getting to do,” she continued.

McEntire went on to say that the last time she attended an award show, she got to meet and “hang out” with the country music stars Lainey Wilson and Jelly Roll.

“Meeting new people and making new friends is what I love about the business,” she gushed.

McEntire will also be performing at the ACM Awards tonight. She will take the stage to perform her new single “I Can’t.”

“It’s a little different from anything I’ve done in a while,” McEntire recently told Good Morning America of the song. “So I hope everybody enjoys it.”
