Country artist Dierks Bentley has been tapped to host the 6th annual ACM Honors, scheduled for Sept. 24 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The evening of musical tribute performances and presentations celebrates the non-televised award winners from the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which were held earlier this year in Las Vegas.
This is Bentley’s first time hosting the event and the third time the ceremony will be held at the Ryman Auditorium.
“I’m really looking forward to helping recognize this year’s ACM honorees,” said Bentley. “Country music has so many talented artists, songwriters and people working behind the scenes. I’m flattered that I’ve been asked to stand on stage beside them.”
“Dierks’ incredible passion combined with his respect for and overwhelming knowledge of the country music genre, both as a renowned artist and songwriter, make him an ideal host for ACM Honors,” said Michelle Goble, ACM’s Senior VP, Membership & Industry Relations. “We look forward to his contribution to the show, as we pay tribute to those who helped forge country music into the outstanding genre it is today.”
