During the tribute concert special, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn receive the Academy’s Milestone Award in recognition of their 20-year career and are honored for holding a record-setting 27 ACM awards, more than any other artist.

Presenters on the special include Dr. Maya Angelou, Miranda Cosgrove and Matthew McConaughey. Ticket proceeds from the live event went to ACM Lifting Lives, and were quickly earmarked to aid those affected by the recent floods in Middle Tennessee.

Brooks & Dunn and Reba McEntire will promote the special with a duet performance on CBS’s Late Show With David Letterman, Friday, May 21 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT).

In more B&D news, the duo will be in Knoxville Wednesday to dedicate a house to a needy family. The “Brooks & Dunn” house is the first of the “Music Row” houses made possible by the Charlie and Moll Anderson Family Foundation, which is teaming up with artists and Knoxville Habitat for Humanity to build homes.
