Additionally, Aldean, along with performing, will receive the Triple Crown Award, honoring his New Male Vocalist of the Year (2005), Male Vocalist of the Year (2012-2014) and Entertainer of the Year (2016) wins; he is one of only seven artists to achieve this feat.
The 2016 ACM Honors ceremony will take place on Aug. 30 at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, and the show will be produced for television by Dick Clark Productions and broadcast on CBS on Sept. 9 at 9PM ET. In addition to performing, Lady A will also be hosting the evening. Tickets for the event will be available for purchase beginning Wednesday at 10AM CT through Ticketmaster.
