The Academy of Country Music has decided to postpone the 2020 ACM Awards, originally scheduled to take place on April 5 in Las Vegas. The annual celebration has been moved to September, as concerns over coronavirus continue to shake everyone and clear calendars.

“This decision involved many partners, stakeholders and the industry who we have been in constant conversations with over the past several days as the situation has developed,” says Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, in a statement. “We look forward to identifying a future date that we can celebrate with our Country community safely.”

As of now, no official date has been named for September.

This year’s event was set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with reigning Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban signed on to host. You can revisit the full list of nominees here.
