Carly Pearce to Host 2021 ACM Honors, Lady A and Ashley McBryde to Perform

Carly Pearce has just been announced as the host of the upcoming ACM Honors! The announcement comes with the news that Lady A, Ashley McBryde, Lee Ann Womack, Lauren Alaina, HARDY, Chris Janson, Sara Evans, RaeLynn and Devin Dawson will also perform, with more performers expected to be announced shortly.

“I am humbled and excited to be hosting the 14th Annual Academy of Country Music Honors ceremony for the first time,” Pearce says of the honor. “Winning two ACM Awards this year was a dream come true, and I cannot wait to share that same feeling with my fellow artists and industry friends as their special moments are recognized. I look forward to a night of honoring the best in Country Music on August 25!”

This year’s ACM Honors is even more meaningful because last year’s event had to be canceled, due to the pandemic.

“The Academy is excited to be back in Nashville with our star-studded 14th Annual Academy of Country Music Honors celebration and to welcome ACM Award winner Carly Pearce as our host,” Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, says. “We look forward to having industry and fans join us as we recognize the significant accomplishments of our 55th and 56th Studio Recording Awards, Industry Awards, Songwriter of the Year and Special Awards winners with a night of unforgettable performances.

“A special congratulations to all of our winners and honorees, and a huge thank you to all of our performers, partners and the Country Music community for joining us to celebrate them together at the Ryman,” he adds.

This year’s ACM Honors will air as a television special at a later date on Circle Network. The ceremony will also be broadcast live on Circle’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages.

“This has always been a night that the ACM honors the Nashville music community. Now, with this Circle All Access livestream, we’ll be able to bring it to fans around the world besides those in the Ryman pews. And then later we’ll air it as a tv special on Circle TV,”  Drew Reifenberger, General Manager of Circle Network says.

Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Lady A, Loretta Lynn, Rascal Flatts are among the artists who will be honored at this year’s ACM Honors. The event will be held on Wednesday, August 25. Tickets are available not at
