Garth Brooks and George Strait will perform together for the first time at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on April 7. Brooks and Strait are both recipients of the ACM’s Artist of the Decade award for the 1990s and the 2000s, respectively.
Their performance will celebrate the renaming of the award to the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade award in honor of the iconic figure and longtime producer of the ACM Awards.
Clark began producing the ACM Awards in 1979. He died in 2012. Clark’s son, R.A. Clark, is now an executive producer of the show and personally invited Strait and Brooks to perform this year.
The ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on CBS.
