Ruling ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban will host for the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 5. Urban also will release his first new tune of 2020, "God Whispered Your Name."
“As if having a new song out today wasn’t enough, I also get to host the ACM’s in April,” said Urban. “I’ll tell you – this year already feels like the most creative and energized year of my life… and there’s so much more to come. Incredibly grateful – and ready to roll!”
“We are thrilled to have our reigning Entertainer of the Year as the centerpiece of our 55th ACM Awards ceremony. Keith epitomizes greatness in our industry, is beloved by fans and fellow artists, and I can’t think of a better representative to be the face of our Awards show and to help usher in a new era at the Academy,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.
