Join the @ACMAwards party on Twitter

By ‎@adashek‎

Tonight, country music fans all over can join the Academy of Country Music Awards party on Twitter. Tune in to tonight’s 49th annual @ACMAwards show at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. Central) on @CBS.

As you’re at home watching, @ACMAwards will live-tweet photos and Vine videos from a Twitter Mirror and Vine 360 Booth. From the red carpet to back stage, each photo and 6-second video will be your real-time window into tonight’s VIP moments. Country artists @EastonCorbin, @BrettEldredge and @TheBrandyClark will also be on the scene tweeting behind-the-scenes updates during the show.

Artists kicked off @ACMAwards weekend with the spirit of philanthropy and performed at the ACM Party For a Cause music festival. In between sets, they found time to pose for #selfies and tweet fans a sneak peek of the action happening on the scene.

Tonight’s most-followed performers and legendary nominees (including @GeorgeStrait, @Shakira, @BlakeShelton, @BrettEldredge), are using Twitter to stir buzz before the big night.

During rehearsals, @GeorgeStrait, @DierksBently and @SherylCrow gave fans a first look at their sets:



Based on these Tweets, being in Las Vegas hasn’t been all work and no play for the country stars (and grandmas) who are in town for @ACMAwards weekend.
