ACMs play to a loyal country audience to shore up ratings

ACMs play to a loyal country audience to shore up ratings

While we have our share of Pinterest addicts in the Rare Country office, we're confident that both Luke and Dierks will be just fine hosting the ACM Awards this year.

"The audience that CBS draws to it on a weekly basis is right dead smack in the wheel of country music", said Jack Sussman, the network's executive vice president of special, music and live events.

Country superstars Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan are making the rounds on CBS shows this week in preparation for hosting together the American Country Music Awards, scheduled to air Sunday night, April 3 on the television network. If you've been given that kind of opportunity, you can always study morning and late-night talk show hosts, or if someone else has done it before you, you might seek out his advice. Your card won't be charged if you cancel before the 7-day trial is up!

Urban also joins the nominees for Album of the Year along with Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Maren Morris and 2015 victor Miranda Lambert.

Who's Nominated at the ACM Awards? As usual, the competition is stiff, but it sure is fun to watch it all go down. "It feels more like a party than an awards show".

A source familiar with the situation added that "getting that coalition on the outside to support this is significant". Priebus and other White House officials stressed that Walsh was the one who chose to leave the administration.

Country music will also crown its best newcomers.
