ACM Winner Blair Garner and After MidNite Head West to Vegas
LOS ANGELES, March 31, 2011 -- 2011 ACM "National On-Air Personality of the Year" award winner Blair Garner will take After MidNite to Las Vegas to celebrate The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards this weekend. Garner will not only pick up his ACM Award at a private ceremony on Saturday, but also hit the ground running as he brings all the excitement of the weekend to his audience on-air and online at www.BlairGarner.com.
For the second straight year, Garner will host the ACM Fremont Street Concerts on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2. Sara Evans and Ronnie Dunn will be among the many featured artists at the two-night event, which Garner describes as "the biggest block party in country music!" The concerts are free to the public and Garner will work between two stages set up at opposite ends of the Fremont Street Experience as he announces each guest.
On Sunday, April 3, Garner and his After MidNite team will be on the ACM red carpet, reporting and capturing all the activity, including candid photos, interviews and more. Garner will then attend the ACM Awards live at the MGM Grand, before dashing over to his remote studio near the entrance of the All Star Jam, where more than 25 artists will stop by to talk with him. Artists scheduled to appear include Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Chris Young, Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Josh Kelley, Ashton Shepard, Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Thompson Square, Chuck Wicks, Lee Brice, Craig Campbell, The Harters, Joey + Rory, Steel Magnolia, Justin Moore, The Band Perry, Sunny Sweeney, the Jane Dear Girls, Brett Elderidge, The Dirt Drifters and several special surprise appearances.
