Posted in News on June 18, 2024

BMI Executive Director of Creative Nashville, Shannon Sanders, has been chosen to receive the ACM Lift Every Voice Award during the 17th annual ACM Honors™ held at the Ryman Auditorium on August 21. This award is presented to a Country Music artist, duo/group, industry leader or affiliate/partner who plays a pivotal role in elevating underrepresented voices throughout the country music genre, transcending demographics and geography. BRELAND (BMI) received the first-ever ACM Lift Every Voice Award in 2023.

Lainey Wilson (BMI) will receive the prestigious ACM Triple Crown Award following her win for ACM Entertainer of the Year at the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards in May 2024. Wilson qualified for the Triple Crown Award after winning ACM New Female Artist of the Year, ACM Female Artist of the Year, and ACM Entertainer of the Year, an honor only nine other artists have been awarded. Wilson is the first solo woman to achieve the ACM Triple Crown Award in a three-year span and the first artist since The Chicks (1998-2000) to qualify for the ACM Triple Crown in that timeframe.

Previously announced Songwriter of the Year Jessie Jo Dillon (BMI), as well as Studio Recording Award and Industry Award winners, will be feted at ACM Honors™. Eleven-time ACM Award winner Tyler Hubbard (BMI) will present the ACM Studio Recording and Industry Awards portion of ACM Honors.
