I will be live blogging the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards starting at 7 tonight right here at BAM’s Blog!

The ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas from 7 to 10 tonight on CBS, with Tishomingo resident Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan co-hosting.

Shelton, his wife Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Thompson Square, Toby Keith, Vince Gill and Rascal Flatts are among the superstars with Oklahoma ties who have been nominated for ACM Awards.

In addition, Shelton, Lambert, Underwood and Garth Brooks have been confirmed as performers for the show, and Lambert, Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire, the show’s former longtime host, have been announced as presenters.
