News update: 2012 ACM Awards rebroadcast on GAC June 4, 2012.
Great American Country (GAC) will broadcast a replay of the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on June 15, 2011 at 9 p.m. ET. GAC will be the only network to rebroadcast the show, hosted by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton, with performances including Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler, Sugarland and Rihanna, Zac Brown Band and James Taylor, Ronnie Dunn, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, and more great country music.
“This partnership builds on the strong relationship we embarked upon in 2005, which was the first year that GAC had the rebroadcast rights to the Academy of Country Music Awards,” said Bob Romeo, executive director of the Academy of Country Music.
The ability to share the Academy of Country Music Awards program with GAC viewers represents a key programming strategy for the network. The annual program is one of the most popular among country music fans, and is well respected by country music artists and their labels.
“GAC is committed to connecting passionate country music fans with the artists they appreciate and admire,” said Sarah Trahern, senior vice president of programming for Great American Country. “The encore presentation of last year’s Academy of Country Music Awards program on GAC drew a sizeable audience of viewers who either missed the CBS broadcast, or who wanted to watch the program again. As the leader in country music television programming, GAC is the natural place the fans expect to find such high quality shows.”
GAC’s exclusive encore presentation of the Academy of Country Music Awards premieres June15 at 9 p.m. ET.
