Luke Bryan was set to shake his hips on the ACM stage but now the country superstar will be watching from a distance. On Monday, Luke Bryan tested positive for COVID-19 and as a result (obviously) has been pulled from the show. Luke is one of the nominees for Entertainer Of The Year.
The ACM’s will be held in Nashville at three of the biggest venues in town, the Ryman Auditorium, The Grand Ole Opry, and the Bluebird Cafe, hosted by Keith Urban and Mickey Guyton.
