CBS and the Academy of Country Music® today announced that reigning ACM® Entertainer of the Year and 15-time ACM Award®-winner Keith Urban will host the 55TH ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS™, Country Music’s Party of the Year®, honoring 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, Sunday, April 5 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network and be available to stream live and on-demand across digital platforms on the CBS All Access subscription service. This will be Urban’s first time hosting the ACM Awards.

“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. Keith epitomizes greatness in our industry, is beloved by fans and fellow artists, and I can’t think of a better representative to be the face of our Awards show and to help usher in a new era at the Academy,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.

“Keith Urban is the perfect choice to host the Academy of Country Music Awards,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events, CBS. “He’s an incredible musician, a respected and revered member of the Country Music community and the music community worldwide, and our viewers love him. We’re thrilled to have him lead Country Music’s Party of the Year.”

Nominations for the 55th ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS will be announced today at a digital press conference hosted on the Academy of Country Music’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts starting at 8:30 AM ET. Participating talent include ACM Award-winning artist Lauren Alaina, this year’s ACM Radio Award National On-Air Personality of the Year winner Bobby Bones, Entertainment Tonight’s Cassie DiLaura and Kevin Frazier, CBS This Morning’s Gayle King, reigning ACM New Female Artist of the Year Ashley McBryde and more will announce select ACM Awards nominations categories via videos posted in real time to fans and media, simultaneously. The full list of nominations will be available on ACMcountry.com at 9:00 AM ET.

2020 is set to be a groundbreaking year of music for four-time GRAMMY® Award winner Keith Urban. Today, he releases a new single “God Whispered Your Name,” which is expected to be followed by several international releases before an album release later this year.  Three distinctive shows each with its own production and set list, will highlight Urban’s year on stage, including 14 concert events at Las Vegas’ prestigious Caesar’s Palace Colosseum, a European tour this May and select fairs and festivals later this summer.

While 2020 shapes up to be a big year for Urban, it follows one that saw him take home both the ACM and CMA Awards for Entertainer of the Year. He officially wrapped a nearly two-year stretch that began with the #1 simultaneous debut (U.S., Canada and Australia) of his ninth studio album, Graffiti U, and concluded his critically acclaimed “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR,” which played to more than one million fans in seven countries on three continents.

Graffiti U followed 2016’s Ripcord, which featured five #1 hits, including “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” which won Best Single at the 2017 CMA Awards and Favorite Country Song at the American Music Awards, where he also collected trophies for Favorite Country Album and Favorite Male Country Artist.

Urban has twice had an album simultaneously atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia and is the only male Country artist to have achieved the mark.  He now stands at #8 on Billboard’s All-Time Country Airplay Chart as the artist with the most consecutive top 10 songs on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart (38) – a streak that started in August of 2000. Urban has won four Grammy Awards, 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, 13 Country Music Association Awards, four People’s Choice Awards and four American Music Awards. Also, he is a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

The 55th ACM Awards will feature exciting performances, unprecedented collaborations, surprising moments and more to be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for the 55th ACM Awards are available for purchase now at ACMawards.com.

GARTH BROOKS TO RECEIVE COVETED ICON AWARD AT THE “2020 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS”

GARTH BROOKS TO RECEIVE COVETED ICON AWARD
AT THE “2020 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS”

BROOKS TO ALSO TAKE THE STAGE FOR
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED PERFORMANCE

The “2020 Billboard Music Awards” Airs
Wednesday, April 29 at 8 P.M. ET/PT on NBC

dick clark productions and NBC announced today that Garth Brooks will receive the coveted ICON Award at the “2020 Billboard Music Awards.” The 19-time Billboard Music Award winner, who joins only eight other artists to ever receive the honor, will also take the stage for a highly anticipated performance.

A true legend, Brooks is the first and only artist in history to achieve eight diamond-certified albums at over 10 million album sales each. He remains the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history, certified by the RIAA with more than 156 million album sales.

The “2020 Billboard Music Awards” will broadcast live from Las Vegas on Wednesday, April 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC and will feature this year’s hottest musical acts, unexpected collaborations and buzzworthy moments.

Brooks has earned nine No. 1 albums on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart (the most of any country artist), with chart-toppers in the ’90s, ’00s and ’10s. Seven of them debuted at No. 1. Brooks also claimed 17 No. 1s on the Top Country Albums chart and 89 hits on the Hot Country Songs chart including 19 No. 1s. Among those leaders: “Friends in Low Places,” “The Thunder Rolls,” “Ain’t Going Down (Til the Sun Comes Up),” “Longneck Bottle” and “More Than a Memory.”

In January, Billboard announced that Brooks became the first artist to have appeared on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and ‘20s. Brooks first appeared on the chart after the release of his first album, Garth Brooks. Its first single, “Much Too Young (to Feel This Damn Old),” entered the chart in 1989 at No. 94 (when the ranking ran 100 positions deep). The track peaked at No. 8 that July, becoming Brooks’ first of 36 top 10s. Now, in the ’20s, he makes another appearance on the Hot Country Songs chart thanks to his collaborative track with Blake Shelton, “Dive Bar.” The single inspired a Dive Bar tour to dive bars in country music capitals around the U.S., which will continue its run through 2022.

In 2019, Brooks launched the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour, which has broken stadium attendance records at every stop so far and which Pollstar declared as the bestselling country music tour of the year. In 2017, Brooks finished the three-and-a-half-year long Garth Brooks World Tour with wife Trisha Yearwood. The tour sold over 6.3 million tickets, making it the biggest North American tour in history and the biggest American tour in the world.

Previous recipients of the ICON Award include Cher, Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.

“Billboard Music Awards” nominees and winners are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital song sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and social engagement, tracked by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The awards are based on the chart period of March 23, 2019 through March 14, 2020. Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of artists, songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of success in music.

The “2020 Billboard Music Awards” is produced by dick clark productions. Barry Adelman, Mark Bracco, Kelly Clarkson, Robert Deaton and Amy Thurlow are executive producers.

Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10:00 AM PST on Friday, February 28, 2020.  CLICK HERE to purchase.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG Attendees Can Scan Their Badges To Ride The Monorail

ALL ATTENDEES OF CONEXPO-CON/AGG CAN SCAN THEIR TRADESHOW
BADGES AT FARE GATES TO RIDE THE MONORAIL

The Las Vegas Monorail announces CONEXPO-CON/AGG & IFPE, to be held in Las Vegas March 10 – 14, will include unlimited Monorail rides via 3-day and 7-day passes embedded into every attendee’s and exhibitor’s registration badge. Having Monorail fare integrated into event badges represents a welcome added value for attendees; it makes riding the system even more convenient while enabling them to avoid congested roadways.

This year’s CONEXPO/CON/AGG has events taking place at two stops along the route:  the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, conveniently accessed from the SAHARA Las Vegas station, and the Las Vegas Convention Center. This fact ensures the Monorail will provide the single most convenient way to navigate the sprawling tradeshow expected to draw nearly 130,000 attendees from around the globe.

“Three years ago, our partners at CONEXPO-CON/AGG understood immediately how an integrated Monorail ticket improved convenience and access when more of their attendees than ever utilized our system,” said Ingrid Reisman, vice president and chief marketing officer, Las Vegas Monorail. “As a complimentary benefit, this partnership provides a valuable transportation alternative that doesn’t rely on the roadways in the corridor. This year, with two tradeshow locations connected by Monorail stations, we look forward to being able to provide even more convenience and connectivity.”

Another exciting development for meetings and conventions groups: when CAESARS FORUM, the new 500,000-square-foot conference and events center located at the Harrah’s/The LINQ station, opens March 18, the Monorail will count three major convention facilities and one major outdoor festival destination along its route. Along with the Las Vegas Convention Center and Las Vegas Festival Grounds, the Monorail also directly serves the MGM Grand Conference Center.
