Home / Music News / ACM Awards Making a Big Splash Through Social Media


Fan voting in the ACM Entertainer of the Year and New Artist of the Year categories is now underway at VoteACM.com, but that isn’t the only way the fans can get involved in this year’s ACM Awards.  The show takes place Sunday, April 7 live on CBS, and fans can get their tweets on the air during the broadcast by using the official ACM Awards hashtag, #ACMs.  An ACM Awards app is also available to iPhone and Android users.

In another fun social media twist, the ACM Awards have made up flat cutouts of this year’s co-hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, and they’re now available for printing at ACMSocialSplash.com.  The ACM is looking for fans to take “Flat Blake” and “Flat Luke” with them to the grocery store, to work or anywhere else.  Just take your photo with either of the cutouts and use #FlatBluke when posting the image to Instagram and Twitter.  Details on how fans can win prizes posting those photos will be announced soon.

Brad Paisley is also recruiting fans attending his performance at the ACM Fan Jam to become part of the light show during his performance.  The Brad Paisley Lightshow app allows users phones’ to display colors in sync with the music during the performance.

The 48th Annual ACM Awards broadcast live from Las Vegas Sunday, April 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern on CBS.
