ACM will also honor 10-time ACM Award winner Kenny Rogers with performances by Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker. The special will broadcast during the time slot previously scheduled for the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards, which will now be broadcast Wednesday, Sept.

Kenneth Donald Rogers (August 21, 1938 – March 20, 2020) was an American singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, and entrepreneur. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013.

The “ACM Presents: Our Country” special that was recently slated to fill in for the postponed ACM Awards next month now has a packed roster of participating country (and a few non-country) artists. The Academy of Country Music and Dick Clark Productions announced more than two dozen acts who’ll participate in the show April 5, including veteran stars of the genre like Shania Twain and fresh ones like Luke Combs.

There probably won’t be as much distance between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, who’ll perform as a duo. Also announced with an ampersand between their names were Kane Brown and John Legend, although whether they’ll join up in the same space or duet virtually was left undeclared.

Keith Urban, who was supposed to have hosted the ACM Awards in the April 5 time slot before the show was pushed back to September 16, will perform on “ACM Presents: Our Country,” as expected.
