ACM Honors 2018 Performers Include Host Lauren Alaina and More
The Academy of Country Music revealed on Thursday (July 29) the first roundup of performers for its 12th annual ACM Honors event, and it's shaping up to be quite the talented list.
Lauren Alaina, Cam, Dustin Lynch, Jon Pardi, Kassi Ashton, Deana Carter, Morgan Evans, Ashley McBryde, Old Crow Medicine Show, and songwriters Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip will be taking the stage on Aug. 22 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium to rock the crowd as part of the evening. Alaina, along with Pardi, will be pulling double duty hosting the event as well.
The event recognizes special honorees and off-camera category winners from the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards, including stars Dierks Bentley (ACM Merle Haggard Spirit Award), Matraca Berg (ACM Poet’s Award), Sam Hunt (ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award), Alan Jackson (ACM Cliffie Stone Icon Award), Darius Rucker (ACM Gary Haber Lifting Lives Award), and a special honor for Songwriter of the Year Rhett Akins.
Tickets are available to the public at Ticketmaster.com. If you can't make it out to Nashville, the ceremony will air on CBS at a later date that is to be announced.
