About ACM Awards
ACM Awards is the first country music awards program, first held in 1966. Since then, it has honoured the brightest stars with honours like “Artist of the Decade”, “Entertainer of the Year” along with other awards for vocalists, albums, songs and much more.
FYI, The award’s signature hat trophy was first created in 1968. Today, the Academy has a much sleeker and modern version of the hat trophy. The New York firm Society Awards makes this trophy.
