NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Academy of Country Music says its April 5 awards show will still go on at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. But the organization says it is closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus and MGM officials are in contact with the CDC and local health officials. Host Keith Urban and nominee Miranda Lambert were announced as performers for the 55th annual show.

California’s governor has been urging the state’s residents to avoid large gatherings
