American Country Countdown Awards Postponed Until Next Year
Awards show season is ending early this year, as the American Country Countdown Awards have been postponed until 2016.
According to the Tennessean, Fox has postponed the awards show, which was set to air on Dec. 17, until spring of 2016.
Last year, the ACC Awards were held in Nashville on Dec. 15. While it was called the "inaugural" show, it simply switched its name and followed Fox's previous American Country Awards, which had aired each December since 2010.
Instead of the event, on Dec. 17 Fox will air a television special called American Country Countdown's Top 10 Stories of 2015. The special will be hosted by Darius Rucker and include appearances from Jason Aldean, Kix Brooks, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Little Big Town, Shania Twain and Carrie Underwood.
During last year's awards show, Aldean took home the top prize of Artist of the Year, while Bryan won Male Vocalist of the Year and Miranda Lambert was named Female Vocalist. Florida Georgia Line swept the awards with three wins, including Group/Duo of the Year, Collaboration of the Year for "This Is How We Roll" featuring Bryan and Digital Song of the Year also for "This Is How We Roll."
The American Country Countdown Awards will celebrate the Grand Ole Opry's 90th anniversary when they air in the spring.
