ACM Honors Women Of Country With Girls Night Out Special
The Academy of Country Music will be honoring Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Carrie Underwood for achievements throughout their careers thus far with a special titled Girl's Night Out: Superstar Women of Country.
Reba has been crowned Top Female Vocalist a record setting seven times, more than any artist throughout the Academy’s 46 year history.
Martina has received the Top Female Vocalist honor by the ACM three times in 2001, 2002 and 2003 respectively. ACM Lifting Lives is honoring McBride for her dedication to raising awareness about domestic violence as well as championing female empowerment through her music. “Independence Day” and “Concrete Angel” are just a couple shining examples.
Miranda Lambert is the only female artist to win Album of the Year twice, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend back in 2007 and in 2009 with Revolution.
Jennifer Nettles, half of the country-pop duo Sugarland, is only the second female artist in ACM history to not only write but perform the winning Song of the Year solo with 2007’s surprise hit “Stay”.
In 2008 Carrie Underwood walked away with the ACM’s highest honor, Entertainer of the Year. History was made in 2009 when Carrie won for the second year in a row, making her the first female artist to ever do so.
Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country will be taped April 4th, the night after the ACM Awards, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas for a special to air at a later date on the CBS network. Other artists and honorees that will take part in the special tribute are to be announced soon.
Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster ($200, $150 and $100) and will go towards the ACM charitable cause ACM Lifting Lives.
