The 45th Annual ACM Awards will air live from Las Vegas from 7 to 10 tonight on CBS, with Oklahoma native Reba McEntire hosting for the 12th time.
Follow along with my live blog of the show, as I’ll chronicle the winners, speeches, performances and other festivities until Reba tells us it’s over.
Voting for entertainer of the year and top new artist is ongoing at www.VoteACM.com. Checotah native Carrie Underwood and Norman resident Toby Keith are nominated for the entertainer prize, the ACM’s top award.
Other artists with Oklahoma ties who are nominated for awards tonight include McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Brooks & Dunn, Blake Shelton and Rascal Flatts.
Trio Lady Antebellum enters the ACM Awards with a leading seven nominations, while 20-year-old superstar Taylor Swift goes in with five nods.
