People Editorial Guidelines Updated on April 18, 2021 11:45 PM Share Tweet Pin Email This year's Academy of Country Music Awards featured their most inclusive lineup of nominees yet. The awards show had four Black nominated artists, the most yet, including Jimmie Allen, Kane Brown, co-host Mickey Guyton and first-time nominee John Legend. In another first, every song nominated for single of the year featured a woman. The big night comes after Morgan Wallen was disqualified from being nominated, after he was caught using a racial slur earlier this year. "The Academy does not condone or support intolerance or behavior that doesn't align with our commitment and dedication to diversity and inclusion," ACM wrote in a statement at the time.
