Country music is bringing us hope and entertainment in this difficult time of coronavirus.

Gayle King revealed on CBS This Morning on Tuesday that she'll be hosting ACM Presents: Our Country, a star-studded two-hour special that will bring together some of the biggest names in country music for in-home acoustic performances, conversations and a look back at past ACM Awards moments. The event will air in place of the ACM Awards, which like most other live events, was recently postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
