Taste of Country has your backstage pass to the 2018 ACM Awards festivities, thanks to a couple of our friends. Three of country music’s hottest newcomers — Michael Ray, Chris Lane and Jimmie Allen — will take over Taste of Country’s Instagram Stories feed this weekend.

Allen kicks it off on Friday (April 13), and fans will see what artists see as he makes his way to and from the dozens of events that surround ACM weekend. The “Best Shot” singer is slated to arrive in Las Vegas in the morning and head straight to radio remote interviews, where he’ll talk about his life, his music and his friends in the music business with dozens of national radio shows. Many of those friends will be on site — yeah, you never know who is going to pop in for a few seconds …

On Saturday, Lane will take part in the ACM Lifting Lives event at Topgolf Las Vegas. The “Take Back Home Girl” singer will share photos from his day, which includes a late night performance with labelmates after midnight eastern time. Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen and Jillian Jacqueline will also take the stage in Vegas, and being a guy who likes to share the spotlight, Lane is sure to pass the phone around to feature some of his friends.

Finally, Ray — who just announced his new Amos album —will bring Taste of Country’s Instagram followers to the ACM Awards. The “Get to You” singer is slated to walk the red carpet and take a seat for the big show Sunday night (April 15). It’s a made-for-television event that rarely puts a spotlight on what’s happening backstage or in the audience. We can’t wait to see who he’s sitting next to!

Remember: The best way to watch the ACM Awards is on TV, with ToC on your phone.
