The ACM Honors 2023 are returning on Wednesday, August 25, with the much-loved ceremony set to feature a spectacular array of performances from some of country music's most lustrous stars.
Hosted by Carly Pearce at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, the 2023 ACM Honors will serve as a celebration of some of the most exciting new talent in the genre, while at the same time paying tribute to the forefathers that paved their way.
Chris Stapleton will receive the ACM Triple Crown, in recognition of the bearded chart-topper having now won the ‘big three’ at the ACM Awards - New Male/Female Artist of the Year, Male/Female Artist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year.
HARDY will be given the ACM Artist-Songwriter of the Year Award, while Kane Brown will take home the ACM International Award. Breland has been announced as the recipient of the first ACM Lift Every Voice Award, which is being given to artists carrying out pioneering work in elevating under-represented voices across country music.
Other 2023 ACM Honors winners include Tim McGraw, Mike Dungan, Troy Vollhoffer, Clint Black, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bill Mayne, Ashley Gorley, the late great Charlie Daniels and more.
Attendees will be able to witness a blockbuster line-up of performances from Bailey Zimmerman, Trisha Yearwood, Breland, Jordan Davis, Keith Urban, Priscilla Block, Lady A, Nelly, Lee Brice, Carly Pearce, The War and Treaty, Hailey Whitters, Brett Young and more.
