Country Music’s Party of the Year®, the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, is Sunday night and Kred will be there. A Kred Influence and Outreach Leaderboard will track the evening’s top influencers and outreachers while Kred Leader Jessica Northey will tweet all the action live from the show in Las Vegas.
The ACM Kred Influence and Outreach Leaderboard displays top influencers and outreachers tweeting with the hashtags #ACMs, #ACMAs, #ACM, #ACMawards and #CMchat in real time. @names get Influence Points whenever they are mentioned, retweeted or replied to with the hashtags, and are awarded Outreach Points when they mention, retweet or reply to others. (Visit the FAQ for more details.)
Jessica is the Kred Leader for the Music Community, the founder of Country Music Chat and is always one of the first on Twitter with country music news and exclusive interviews. Follow her at @JessicaNorthey and join her Mondays at 9pm ET for Country Music Chat with the hashtag #CMchat.
The show, hosted by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton, will be broadcast on Sunday, April 1st at 8pm live Eastern and tape-delayed in the Pacific time zone. Highlights are sure to be appearances by many of country’s biggest stars, including Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Chris Young, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Rascal Flatts.
We expect tweets to spike during one unique segment. For the first time in ACM Awards history – and perhaps in the history of awards shows – a live wedding ceremony will take place onstage during Martina McBride and Pat Monahan’s duet of “Marry Me.”
