The 56th American Country Music Awards are set to air from Nashville on April 18, 2021. The show will be hosted by Keith Urban and Mickey Guyton, who’s nominated for New Female Artist of the Year. Urban is also nominated for two awards (per Sounds Like Nashville).
This will be Urban’s second time hosting the awards — he previously hosted the 55th ACM Awards that were postponed for September 2020 and aired in Nashville — and this time he’s happy to have a talented co-host by his side. “I’m beyond thrilled to be co-hosting with my friend Mickey,” Urban said in a statement (per Tennessean.com). “I love that finally everyone will get to see her infectious energy and uber creative spirit in full light.”
