Sugarland is given top billing at the ACM Fan Jam concert during the 2011 ACM Awards!
The Academy of Country Music wants to be sure ALL fans have a chance to participate in this year’s live telecast of the 46th Annual ACM Awards in April. That’s why they have put together a special 3hour fans-only concert that will be broadcast simultaneously with the awards show. The ACM Fan Jam will feature Sugarland as a headliner, with more acts to be announced soon. The event will take place at the exact same time as the ACM Awards, and be broadcast from the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The ACM Fan Jam will include three LIVE remotes into the 46th Annual ACM Awards telecast-one for each hour of the show-and will also include a profusion of entertainment, including live performances by upcoming country music acts, prizes and special give-aways for attendees only, such as autographed guitars, trip packages to country music events and merchandise. Fans at the ACM Awards wear cocktail or dressy attire, but at the Fan Jam, concert attire is key because the night continues with many more live performances and appearances after the Awards taping ends. Once the party starts, it won’t stop!!
