Country music awards show getting bigger


The party that the Academy of Country Music throws for its annual awards show in Las Vegas is getting bigger.

Sugarland will headline the ACM Fan Jam, a live concert that will run simultaneously with the awards show on April 3 on CBS. There will be three live remotes from the event at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino — one during each hour of the live broadcast.

The awards show will be held at the MGM Grand with Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton hosting. Nominations will be announced Feb. 1.

Tickets for the Fan Jam, the awards show, and the April 4 taping of the television special Girls' Night Out: Superstar Women of Country go on sale at 1 p.m. Wednesday at ticketmaster.com.
