In 2015, the Academy of Country Music Awards will move to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for the first time ever to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this legendary awards ceremony. On April 19, the home of the Dallas Cowboys will come alive with the sounds of many established and rising country performers during this milestone event. With Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan set to return as co-hosts, this one-night-only musical celebration is sure to showcase why it's called "Country Music's Party of the Year."
AT&T Stadium Seating Information
All of the regular seating levels at AT&T Stadium will be open during the ACM Awards 2015, starting with the 100 Level nearest to the stadium floor and moving all the way up to the highest 400 Level. There are also a few rings of suites that surround AT&T Stadium: the Hall of Fame Suites follow the 100 Level, and the Silver, Ring of Honor, and Star Suites follow the 300 Level. For the awards ceremony, there will also be two distinct admission options on the Floor Level. Eight sections of reserved seating will stand closest to the custom stage, and there will be a general admission, standing-room-only VIP area--dubbed the "Party Zone"--towards the rear of the Floor Level.
AT&T Stadium General Information
Expect the NFL's bag policy to be in effect for this high-profile music event at AT&T Stadium, meaning all large bags and backpacks will be prohibited. Many other items will likely not be allowed inside the gates on April 19, including signs, banners, food and beverages purchased outside the stadium, cameras, recording devices, and any other items deemed inappropriate by security.

AT&T Stadium Gate Times
The ceremony is expected to begin at 7 p.m. CST, and doors are scheduled to open two hours prior to that. As the ACM Awards will likely be a high security event, it will be best to arrive as early as possible.
