Taylor Swift Performing at 2020 ACM Awards
Five years after winning her most recent ACM trophy, Taylor Swift will be performing at the 2020 ACM Awards, the Academy of Country Music announced on Sunday (Sept. 13).
The country-turned-pop superstar will perform "Betty" from the Grand Ole Opry House. The song comes from Swift's surprise-released album, Folklore, which dropped on July 24, and is being promoted as a country radio single.
"'Bout to show up at your party," Swift tweeted on Sunday afternoon, alluding to a line in the chorus of "Betty":
Swift has not performed at the ACM Awards since 2013, a press release from the ACM shares. Her last ACM Awards win, a 50th Anniversary Milestone Award, came in 2015; prior to that, she earned a Video of the Year trophy in 2014, and was named Entertainer of the Year in 2011 and 2012. All told, Swift has nine ACM Awards wins, off of 35 nominations.
