ACM Awards Show Leaving Las Vegas for Texas in 2015
Sunday night’s (April 6) Academy of Country Music Awards telecast contained an exciting announcement from George Strait and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones: The 2015 ACM show will head to Arlington, Texas, to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The show is set for April 19, 2015. For the past several years, the awards telecast has been held in Las Vegas.
It’s shaping up to be the biggest awards show in country history, as it will be broadcast from the massive AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys. “The stadium was built to host world class events,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement about the show, “and it doesn’t get any bigger than the ACMs.” George Strait added, “To see a landmark event like the ACM Awards move to one of the biggest venues in the country . . . it is a testament to the fans.” George took home the ACM Entertainer of the Year trophy at the April 6 show, his first win in that category since 1989.
Now for the big question: How can you attend? Fans can purchase tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime event beginning Tuesday, April 15, at 10 a.m. CT by visiting acmawards.com.
The golden anniversary celebration will also include the ACM Party for a Cause: 50 Years of Music & Memories, April 17 and 18, from Globe Park in Arlington. The two-day outdoor event will feature live performances from country’s top stars, interactive experiences and other fun attractions.
