MONDAY, APRIL 7, 2014 ON FOXTEL’S COUNTRY MUSIC CHANNEL

Starting March 25th Country Music Fans in Australia Have the Power to Vote for Entertainer of the Year and ACM New Artist of the Year at www.VoteACM.com

The Academy of Country Music and dick clark productions announced this weekend at the CMC Rocks the Hunter Festival that the 49th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, Country Music’s Party of the Year®, will broadcast LIVE for the first time in Australia on Monday, April 7, 2014 at 10:00AM AEST on Foxtel’s Country Music Channel (CMC) and again in primetime at 8:00PM AEST (Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 8:00PM, live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network in the United States).  Additionally, fan voting will be open in Australia for the Entertainer of the Year award and the ACM New Artist of the Year award. Country music fans will have the power to choose the winners by casting their votes at www.VoteACM.com starting March 25 (March 24 in the United States). The ceremony, which will be co-hosted by Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, is produced for television by dick clark productions and broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The announcement was made from the stage at CMC Rocks the Hunter Festival by ACM CEO Bob Romeo and Great American Country’s Headline Country host Storme Warren.  CMC Rocks the Hunter Festival headliner Toby Keith congratulated two lucky music fans that were selected from the audience to instantly win a trip to the 49th ACM Awards in Las Vegas on April 6.

“Country music has extended to a worldwide fan base, largely due in part to the loyal fans in Australia,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “We are excited to partner with Foxtel on this opportunity to share the experience of watching the ACM Awards LIVE with the Australian television viewers.”

Said Shaun James, General Manager Foxtel Networks Music Channels, “Foxtel is proud to be bringing the ACM Awards to Australian audiences for the very first time. As shown by the success of the CMC Rocks the Hunter festival, country music resonates strongly with people all around the nation and to be able to offer Australian fans the opportunity to engage with these prestigious Awards is terrific.”

John Rich of Big & Rich, a former ACM Board Member, was instrumental in the Academy’s change to allow fan voting in 2008. “I pushed hard for ‘fan voted awards’ when I served on the ACM board. As an artist myself, I feel that when fans give you an award it’s the ultimate compliment,” said John Rich. Big Kenny, also of Big & Rich, added, “I think it’s about time we bring the ACMs and the country music to the rest of the world! Hello to all our friends in Australia.”

Entertainer of the Year fan voting provides fans the opportunity to vote for the Academy’s most prestigious award, Entertainer of the Year, for which Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, George Strait and Taylor Swift are nominated. Fans will also help choose the ACM New Artist of the Year, for which Brett Eldredge, Justin Moore and Kip Moore are the nominees.Fan voting for Entertainer of the Year and ACM New Artist of the Year will open starting Monday, March 24 (United States & Canada) and Tuesday, March 25 (Australia) at www.VoteACM.com. New Artist of the Year voting will close at 10:00AM AEST on Monday, April 7, 2014 (before the LIVE show starts in Australia), and Entertainer of the Year voting will close during the third hour of the LIVE broadcast. Text voting for Entertainer of the Year is available to fans in the United States only.
