The Academy of Country Music has announced Warner Records artist Bebe Rexha as an additional recipient of the ACM Music Event of the Decade Award for “Meant to Be” featuring Florida Georgia Line. Rexha received her award 10/20 backstage at the Hollywood Bowl while on tour with the Jonas Brothers. Florida Georgia Line received the same award for “Meant to Be” on 9/28, during the final stop of their Can't Say I Ain't Country Tour.

With this win, Rexha joins the string of the seven all-new ACM Decade Award categories, including Music Event of the Decade Award, Breakout Artist of the Decade Award, Single of the Decade Award recipients Florida Georgia Line, Artist-Songwriter of the Decade Award recipient Chris Stapleton, Songwriter of the Decade Award recipient Rhett Akins and Song of the Decade Award recipients Miranda Lambert, and songwriters Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin, for “The House That Built Me.” 

The Music Event of the Decade Award recognizes a recording performed by artists who do not regularly perform together that has impacted country music over the decade. The factors considered include success at radio, commercial media, sales and streaming, artistic merit and ACM Award recognition.  

“Bebe’s an artist who proves that music has no limitations. Artist collaborations are one of the biggest creative forces in all genres of music today. So when you put two artists like Bebe and FGL together, you’re going to get a great hit song and we are so thrilled to be able to recognize that,” said ACM Interim Executive Director RAC Clark

Rexha received her first-ever ACM nominations in 2018, with a total of 4 nods for Song of the Year, Single of the Year and Music Event of the Year.  With this recognition, she receives her first ACM Award.
