It’s time for the 49th ACM Awards on CBS starting at 8pm ET / 7pm CT / 8pm PT (delayed). Taylor Swift is attending and presenting. She is not performing. She is nominated for:

  • Entertainer of the Year
  • Female Vocalist of the Year
  • Single Record of the Year, Video of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for ”Highway Don’t Care” Tim McGraw Featuring Taylor Swift & Keith Urban.

The show’s eastern broadcast is 8pm ET. That’s 1am in London, UK (Monday), 2am in Brussels, Belgium (Monday) and 10am in Sydney, Australia (Monday).  Remember US, Canada and Australia can vote online.

The odds are not in her favor, but if enough people can vote that tide can be turned. You can now vote for Taylor for ACM Entertainer of the Year for the 49th Annual ACM Awards right here. Yes, it’s unlikely given the industry favorites but…. never quote me the odds. Like I said in my last editorial, she’s always a winner in my book.

The official livestream is via Yahoo Music’s RAM Country hub page starting at 6:30pm ET / 3:30 PT.

Blake and Luke host. Performing tonight are Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley with Sheryl Crow, Lee Brice, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brett Eldredge, Hunter Hayes, Miranda Lambert, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Shakira, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Keith Urban, The Band Perry, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks and Rascal Flatts.
