ACM UNVEILS NEW AWARDS, HONORS LAMBERT AND CO.
9/4/19


The Academy of Country Music announced today seven all-new ACM Decade Award categories, including ACM Song of the Decade, which was recently announced in a surprise backstage presentation to Miranda Lambert and songwriters Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin for "The House That Built Me."

The ACM Decade Awards were ratified by the ACM Board of Directors, following a stringent examination by more than 20 Board members and the ACM Special Awards Committee co-chaired by Chucky Aly and Kelly Rich—criteria was based on creative and commercial succes in the genre, along with the most influential projects over the past decade of country music. 

These awards will be presented only every ten years, with categories including: ACM Album of the Decade, ACM Artist-Songwriter of the Decade, ACM Breakout Artist of the Decade, ACM Single of the Decade, ACM Songwriter of the Decade and ACM Music Event of the Decade. The recipients will be announced in the coming weeks. 

The ACM Song of the Decade Award recognizes a song that has impacted country music over the decade. The factors considered include but are not limited to: success at radio, commercial media, sales and streaming, creative integrity, artistic merit and ACM Award recognition. Lambert is the most-awarded artist in Academy history, with a total of 34 wins. In 2010, the hit song “The House That Build Me” won in three separate ACM categories, including Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year.

As previously announced during the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards, the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award was presented to Jason Aldean. He joins only five other honorees that have received the Artist of the Decade Award, which include Marty Robbins in 1969, Loretta Lynn in 1979, Alabama in 1988, Garth Brooks in 1998 and George Strait in 2008. This Award was renamed the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award after Clark passed away in 2012, in recognition of his many years as the ACM Awards producer and early host.
