The 11th Annual ACM Honors was taped at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium August 23rd for air later this month on CBS. And judging by the video being released by the ACM, it’s going to be a pretty spectacular show.
The annual event recognizes special honorees and off-camera category winners from the Academy of Country Music Awards, which took place in April. This year’s honorees include Kelsea Ballerini (Gene Weed Milestone Award), Toby Keith (Poet’s Award), Bob Kingsley (Mae Boren Axton Service Award), Reba McEntire (Mae Boren Axton Service Award), Dolly Parton (Gary Haber Lifting Lives Award), Shel Silverstein (Poet’s Award, awarded posthumously) George Strait (Cliffie Stone Icon Award) and songwriter Lori McKenna (Songwriter of the Year). Previews of the night’s performances can be seen below.
