Taylor Swift Is Finally Making A Comeback To The Country Stage

Taylor Swift Is Finally Making A Comeback To The Country Stage”

15-time ACM Award victor Keith Urban hosts the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards live from three Nashville aka Music City venues, the Ryman Auditorium, the Grand Ole Opry House and the Bluebird Cafe.

Host Keith Urban noted all the changes this year for the show and for the country in general, saying 2020 has been an "unpredictable and unsettling year". Both of her previous two albums failed to turn in a Billboard No. 1 single, although she's always earned critical acclaim in the way of positive reviews and honors at country awards shows. The "Bones" singer was seen in Nashville earlier in the evening on Wednesday, rehearsing for her ACM Awards performance. Having previously won in 2009 and 2010, Underwood celebrated her third Entertainer of the Year distinction.

It's been a long climb for Guyton in the country music: She's worked for years to break through into the mainstream, and having the opportunity to perform at the ACMs, with Keith Urban accompanying her on piano, was overwhelming - especially, she jokes, during her pregnancy, a time when emotions are already high. "This is an award that I never expected to win", said Morris, who thanked her husband and baby boy, Hayes, before blurting out "Oh my God, I have to pee!"

Miranda Lambert couldn't have picked a better spot to perform her recent No. 1 song "Bluebird" than from Nashville's Bluebird Cafe. Lambert's vocals seemed to fill up the space in the tiny songwriters' club surrounded by tables and chairs, but no fans.

Taylor Swift attends the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Riley Green won new male artist. The Bluebird Cafe's neon sign glowed over her head, Christmas lights surrounding the stage, as she sang.

"So me standing on that stage, representing women of color - period - it tells them they can sing whatever they want to sing".
