The celebratory party doesn’t stop for the Academy of Country Music, which will debut the 10th Annual ACM Honors on CBS. Lady Antebellum will host. The event recognizes the special honorees and off-camera category winners from the 51st ACM Awards in April.
Among the Special Awards recipients are Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Glen Campbell, Crystal Gayle, Tanya Tucker, Jimmy Webb, and The Statler Brothers. Jeff Walker and Eddie Rabbitt will receive posthumous awards. Ross Copperman will be honored as Songwriter of the Year.
The event will tape at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on August 30 and will air on CBS at a date to be determined at a later time.
Lady Antebellum, meanwhile, will kick off their 2016 summer tour on May 27 in Baton Rouge, LA as part of Bayou Country Superfest.
