The country music community has descended on Las Vegas for the 2019 ACM Awards. Sunday night's (April 7) awards ceremony, which will air live on CBS beginning at 8PM ET, is the culmination of a weekend full of fun — and a little work.

Ahead of the 2019 ACM Awards, artists will be participating in a number of smaller shows and other charity-focused events as part of the ACM Party for a Cause, which benefits the Academy of Country Music's charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives. They'll also be chatting with media members and, of course, rehearsing for the big show itself.

The 2019 ACM Awards will feature performances from Blake SheltonOld DominionCarrie UnderwoodEric Church and many more. For the second consecutive year, Reba McEntire will host the event. Dan + Shay and Chris Stapleton lead this year's list of nominees, with six nods each.
