The Academy of Country Music has been a busy bunch as of late with the ACM Awards show quickly approaching. ACM has recently announced that Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson will be presenting together at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

As a pre-show treat, the Academy of Country Music and Dick Clark productions will be airing a live red carpet webcast. The show begins at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, April 3. The 90-minute pre-show will feature red-carpet interviews, highlights from “The Week Vegas Goes Country,” retrospective best-of packages, as well as consumer-generated questions and comments for hosts to ask the country's finest.
In addition to the awards show, ACM has partnered with the United Service Organizations (USO) to bring a free and private concert to the troops and families of the Nellis Air Force Base, stationed just outside of Las Vegas, NV. The concert will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 2, and feature stars Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge, Little Big Town, co-host of the ceremony Blake Shelton, Sunny Sweeney and USO Tour veterans Montgomery Gentry and Craig Morgan.
