ACM Awards 2020 Predictions + Drinking Game


Tonight is the ACM Awards on CBS at 7PM! This year will look different for obvious reasons... but I'm excited to see the production of the show overall.

I feel like in Wisconsin we can always turn everything into a drinking game - so here we are with an ACM Awards Drinking Game that I helped come up with Shanna (you can hear her right after me weekdays starting at 3PM).

Drink every time Luke Combs wins

Drink every time Miranda Lambert wins

Drink every time there’s any sort of reference to “We’re in this together”

Drink every time Keith Urban refers to Nicole Kidman or his family

Drink every time an artist plays a new song we haven’t heard yet on the radio

Drink every time you predict the right winner

Drink every time someone in the rooms asks, “Who’s that?”

Drink every time an artist thanks “country radio”

Drink every time you realize the lyric you were singing is wrong

Drink every time Keith Urban has an outfit change (will he pull a Carrie Underwood?!)

Here are my predictions for the night (all of which are hard for me to commit to considering I love each artist for different reasons):
