The 59th Academy of Country Music Awards is gearing up for an unforgettable night, and the latest addition to the lineup has fans buzzing with excitement. Post Malone, the chart-topping artist known for his genre-blending hits, is set to make his debut on the legendary ACM Awards stage. The event will take place on May 16, 2024, at the Ford Center at the Star.

Post Malone’s inclusion in the ACM Awards lineup reflects the growing trend of artists crossing musical boundaries. The Grapevine-raised star has seamlessly transitioned into the country music scene, captivating audiences with his unique blend of country, rock, and hip-hop influences. His performance promises to be a highlight of the evening, showcasing his signature raspy vocals and undeniable stage presence.

Star-studded collaborations

But that’s not all! The ACM Awards will feature several exciting duets, bringing together some of the biggest names in music.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani: The power couple will take the stage together, performing their current single, “Purple Irises.” With six ACM Awards under his belt, Shelton is no stranger to the spotlight, and Stefani’s pop sensibility adds a fresh twist to the country genre.

Kelsea Ballerini and Noah Kahan: Ballerini, a nominee for Album of the Year and Female Artist of the Year, will team up with rising star Noah Kahan. Their duet promises to be a memorable moment during the awards show.

Avril Lavigne and Nate Smith: Lavigne, known for her punk-rock anthems, will join forces with new male artist of the year nominee Nate Smith. Their collaboration is sure to bring a dynamic energy to the stage.

Parker McCollum: The 2022 New Male Artist of the Year winner will also perform, adding his Texas roots and soulful sound to the mix.

Hosted by Reba McEntire

Country music icon Reba McEntire will host the ACM Awards for the 17th time. Her wit, charm, and love for the genre make her a beloved figure in the country music community. McEntire will not only keep the show running smoothly but will also treat viewers to new music during her performance.

The ACM Awards will stream live globally on Prime Video at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. And here’s the best part: no Prime membership is required to enjoy the Party of the Year. Last year’s ACM Awards, hosted by Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, garnered over 7.7 million viewers across various platforms, making it one of the most-watched awards shows of the year.

So mark your calendars, tune in, and get ready to witness Post Malone’s country-infused magic alongside an incredible lineup of artists. The 2024 ACM Awards promise to be a night to remember!
