Winners Announced For 50th Annual ACM Awards

Winners have been announced for the 50th ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, a star-studded ceremony broadcast LIVE tonight on the CBS Television Network from AT&T Stadium, Home of the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, TX. The Awards show moved to Texas for the first time ever in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. Fans named Luke Bryan as Entertainer of the Year, the evening’s biggest honor and his second win in this category. The 50th ACM Awards broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the Highest Attendance at an Awards Show Broadcast with a total of 70,252 fans in attendance.

Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Reba, George Strait, Taylor Swift, and Brooks & Dunn were honored with the 50th Anniversary Milestone Award and presented with an exclusive trophy designed by America’s premier jewelry and timepiece designer, David Yurman. Like the jewelry designs of David Yurman, this ACM trophy is a timeless piece of craftsmanship that will be treasured for a lifetime.

GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ made several surprise presentations throughout the evening. Alabama has set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the Most Consecutive Wins as ACM Entertainer of the Year. Alabama was honored with the Academy’s most prestigious honor five years in a row between 1981 and 1985. Brooks & Dunn set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles for the Most Wins for ACM Vocal Duo of the Year, which they won 16times, and Most Consecutive Wins for ACM Vocal Duo of the Year which they won eight times. Rascal Flatts has set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles for the Most Consecutive Wins for ACM Vocal Group of the Year and Most Wins for Vocal Group of the Year. The band won the award for both of these categories seven times in a row from 2002-2008.

Next year’s ACM Party for a Cause® Festival® will be bigger than ever.
