The People’s Choice Awards are feeling a little bit a lot country.

The PCAs franchise is expanding by way of the first-ever People’s Choice Country Awards, to air in September across NBC and Peacock, live from the world-famous Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville.

The two-hour ceremony will “lean into the rich connection between country music and the Opry through chart-topping musical performances, genre-bending collaborations, legendary tributes and surprise moments that regularly happen from the iconic venue.”
