The 2020 ACM Awards had to be postponed this year due to the current world environment. They were originally scheduled to be held in April in Las Vegas, but were rescheduled for September 16.
For the first time in ACM Awards history, the program was held in “Music City” itself…Nashville. The ceremony was led by first-time host Keith Urban.

Nominees for the 2020 ACM Awards were announced all the way back in February. So the artists (and fans) have eagerly been waiting to hear who will walk away with some of the top trophies, including the award for Female Artist of the Year.
Since the nominees for the ACM’s Female Artist of the Year award were announced so long ago, we’ll give you a refresher. The nominees in this year’s category were:
Musgraves took home the award in 2019, ending Lambert’s nine-year streak as a winner in the category.

Morris thanked her husband and her baby boy Hayes during her speech. Join us in congratulating Maren! She definitely earned that title!
