Taylor Swift will return to the ACM Awards stage after seven years.

Country fans, Swift is back. Her ACM Awards performance will be her first live performance since the release of her newest album, folklore. 

This 30-year-old singer-songwriter’s last performance on the ACM stage was in 2013 for her last country genre album, Red. She performed “Highway Don’t Care” with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban. The following year, Swift released her 1989 album, which was her breakthrough from country to pop music.

This will mark her first performance for any of her folklore songs. Swift will be performing “betty” from the album. The song has reached #6 on Billboard’s Hot Country song chart. Additionally, Swift’s new album has held the top spot on the Billboard 200 Albums chart for six weeks.

The nine-time ACM Award winner tweeted on Sunday saying, “Bout to show up at your party,” which are lyrics for the song she will be performing on the Nashville stage.

Due to the COVID-19 health concerns, the ACM Awards were postponed to this fall in Nashville, Tennessee after being scheduled in Las Vegas this past spring. Due to social distancing efforts, the awards will be located at three different legendary locations including The Bluebird Cafe, Ryman Auditorium, and Grand Ole Opry House.

The show will be broadcasted from the Grand Ole Opry, where Swift will be performing. Other performers will include Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Blake Shelton with Gwen Stefani, and Dan + Shay.

Tune in on Wednesday, September 16, to watch Swift’s performance on CBS 8 PM ET. We can’t wait to see what she has planned for this special return.
