WHOA! Legends will Collide at the ACMs!!!
The ACM awards are coming up soon, April 7th live from Las Vegas and (in my opinion) the two biggest stars in the history of country music will team up for a duet for the first time EVER!
Dick Clark, the media mogul and longtime producer of the ACM awards up until his death last year, will be honored with a special performance featuring GEORGE STRAIT and GARTH BROOKS!!!! This will be the first time ever, that George & Garth have teamed up for a duet! The Academy has also announced that the "Artist of the Decade" award will be renamed to the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award. George and Garth are the two most recent recipients of the honor.
"Dick helped make country music accessible to a larger fan base and his efforts will not be forgotten," says George. "Garth and I were so grateful when we each received the ACM Artist of the Decade Award, so it's only fitting that we'll be honoring him with this tribute performance at the ACMs."
"I commend the Academy on naming the ACM Artist of the Decade Award after Dick Clark. Although there is no award the entertainment industry has that can match the magnitude of the star Dick Clark was, and still is, it is an honor to get to be a part of the Academy's tribute to him," adds Garth. "There may be others who have contributed as much to the music industry, but there is definitely no one that has contributed more than Dick Clark. He was music's best friend, and a dear friend to me."
