A star-studded lineup of performers showcased their talent on the 2024 ACM Awards stage.

The country music community gathered together tonight (May 16) to celebrate the 59th annual ACM Awards. Dubbed “country music’s party of the year,” the night was full of exciting wins and memorable performances.

Two celebrated performers used the opportunity to share new music with fans and colleagues. Reba McEntire performed her brand new song “I Can’t,” which she recently debuted on The Voice. In addition, four-time nominee Jelly Roll performed a never-before-heard song.

Jelly Roll’s 2023 ACM performance of “Save Me” with Lainey Wilson earned high praise and catapulted the song to the top of the charts. As a result, the duo earned a nomination for Music Event of the Year at this year’s ceremony.

Jelly Roll’s desire to “kick off a new era” of music at the ACM Awards

In an interview with CountryNow prior to the awards show, Jelly Roll recalled his last time on the ACM stage and shared:

“I don’t want to get emotional talking about this, but ‘Save Me,’ me and Lainey debuted it here last year. It went on to be a number one record. It’s a triple platinum, I mean, it’s huge. [It] changed my life in every way,” he shared. “It was a big part of the Whitsitt Chapel era of that album and then we kind of get to debut another new song here. So it’s cool. It feels like it’s turning into, I hope, a cycle. Maybe I debut a song every ACM.”

Jelly Roll added that he is eager to close the chapter of Whitsitt Chapel, his current album, and move forward to a new chapter, hinting that he has a lot of new music in store.
