Dan + Shay Wins “Duo of the Year” At The 2020 ACM Awards

Twitter / ACM Awards

The 55th ACM Awards, hosted by Keith Urban, took place at three iconic venues throughout Nashville, the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium, and the Bluebird Cafe.

This is the first time in its 55-year history that the ACMs were held in Music City! The country music award show began in Los Angeles, California until 2003 when it made the move to Las Vegas, Nevada. From 2003 on Las Vegas was consecutively the awards show home, with the exception of the 2015 50th Anniversary of the ACMs that were held in Arlington, Texas.

The 55th ACM Awards were originally scheduled to take place in Las Vegas earlier in the year, however, the pandemic forced the show to be rescheduled to tonight and at three all-new locations!

At the 2019 ACM Awards, Dan + Shay broke the Brothers Osborne three year streak of winning “Duo of the Year” from 2016 to 2018 when they won the award in 2019.

Dan + Shay and Brothers Osborne are nominated again this year! Will Dan + Shay win back-to-back years, will Brothers Osborne take back the title or will somebody new take over the reign!?

The nominees for the 2020 ACM Awards “Duo of the Year” were:

  • Brooks and Dunn
  • Brothers Osborne
  • Dan + Shay
  • Florida Georgia Line

After waiting since February, when all the nominees were first announced, the time has finally come!
