BROOKS & DUNN, KACEY MUSGRAVES + MORE TO RECEIVE 2019 ACM HONORS

Brooks & Dunn, Kacey Musgraves and more will be recognized during the 2019 ACM Honors ceremony in late August in Nashville. The Academy of Country Music announced on Tuesday (May 28) the complete list of honorees for this year.

Along with Martina McBride, Brooks & Dunn are the 2019 recipients of the ACM Cliffie Stone Icon Award, which recognizes those in the country music industry who have “advanced the popularity of the genre through their contributions in multiple facets of the industry.” Brooks & Dunn, of course, are the most-awarded duo and second-most-awarded act ever in ACM history — not to mention a simply iconic country pairing — while McBride has charted more than 50 songs on the Billboard Country Airplay chart throughout her decades-long career. She won the ACM Female Vocalist of the Year honor three times in a row (2001-2003) and also received the ACM Humanitarian Award in 2003.
