Little Big Town, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood are just some of the stars who’ll be part of the 10th Annual ACM Honors at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium this fall, which will be televised for the first time ever as a special on CBS.
The Academy of Country Music will give Carrie its new ACM Lifting Lives Gary Haber Award for her charitable work, while Little Big Town will receive the Crystal Milestone trophy for their success with “Girl Crush.” Keith will get the Mae Boren Axton Award, in recognition of his dedication and service to the Academy.
Crystal Gayle, Tanya Tucker and The Statler Brothers will be honored with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award for the mark their careers have made on country music. Glen Campbell, who’s currently in the final stages of Alzheimer’s, will get the Career Achievement Award. His frequent collaborator Jimmy Webb will get the songwriter’s honor, known as the Poet’s Award. It will also be given to Eddie Rabbitt posthumously.
So far, we don’t know the exact date the ceremony will be held, or when the special will air on CBS.
