Some of country music’s biggest stars will head to Los Angeles for the second annual American Country Countdown Awards this May.
Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett have been announced as performers for the event, which has been relocated from its original location in downtown Nashville to California. According to Rolling Stone, this move makes the ACCAs the first country music awards show to be held in L.A. for over a decade.
The ceremony was created as an offshoot of the American Country Countdown With Kix Brooks radio program, which has been on the air for over forty years. Although the awards made its debut in 2014, it suffered from lackluster ratings and did not return for a second year in 2015. It’s return in a new location likely signals an attempt to revamp the awards ceremony and make it more relevant to country fans who aren’t as familiar with the American Country Countdown.
Those interested in attending the ACCAs can purchase tickets through Ticketmaster beginning on Tuesday, March 22 at 10 a.m. PT.
The American Country Countdown Awards will be broadcast live May 1, at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
