Details for a number of ACM-related events, including information about the 2017 ACM Party for a Cause events, activities and official ACM after parties, are still to be announced. The awards ceremony is sure to feature country music's biggest stars and up-and-coming new performers, both as nominees in the biggest categories, and as performers.

Veteran ACMs host Luke Bryan invited his good friend Dierks Bentley to co-host the broadcast in 2016, and the two men revealed an easy comedic chemistry. It remains to be seen who will host in 2017, but it's sure to be a pair of country music's brightest stars.
