NEW YORK -- Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards will feature a number of the genre's biggest stars, even although chart-toppers such as Morgan Wallen and Luke Bryan will not be in the construction.
Wallen, whose newest singles and album have discovered significant success on both the country and pop charts, was declared ineligible from the ACMs after he had been caught on camera with a racial slur before this season. Bryan backed from this case, airing on CBS in p.m. Eastern, since he tested positive for the coronavirus.
Bryan is nominated to the best trophy -- entertainer of the year -- in which his rivalry contains Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church and Thomas Rhett, who won the honor this past year at a tie with Carrie Underwood.
"Coming in and finding out that you simply winning entertainer of the year combined with Carrie Underwood, that is just -- that's just adrenaline to last you the entire year ," Rhett said in an interview Saturday. "So it is a honour to be back in the ACMs, nominated at the exact same class is merely super unique. And something I shall not in a million years take for granted and only feel honored to be here"
The foursome Little Big Town may even perform though group member Phillip Sweet will not participate since he tested positive for COVID-19.
Stapleton and Morris will be the best nominees with six each. Stapleton's nominations include record, song and male artist of this year. Morris' nominations consist of single and female artist of the year. She landed a set of the year nod as a member of this Highwomen, the supergroup also comprising Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby.
A number of the ACM winners were pre-announced, such as Gabby Barrett (brand new female performer ), Jimmie Allen (brand new man musician ) and Kane Brown (movie of this year).
