LAS VEGAS (AP) — The show won't go on for the Academy of Country Music.
The annual awards show was to be held April 5 in Las Vegas and televised on CBS but now is the latest entertainment event to fall victim to the coronavirus pandemic.
The academy has postponed the award to September, at a date and venue to be determined later.
Academy officials said Sunday that they tried hard to find a way to hold the event safely. But there's been a growing call by government officials across the country to halt events that draw a big crowd.
