The 11th annual "ACM Honors" took place on August 23 at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The awards show will air on CBS this Friday, September 15 at 9 p.m. "ACM Honors" celebrates the special award honorees from this year "Academy of Country Music Awards."

Honoring some of the best

Country music legend Reba McEntire will receive the prestigious Mae Boren Axton Service Award. This award is presented as recognition to a country music artist who has years of dedication and service to the Academy of Country Music.

Reba's latest album, "Sing it Now: Songs of Faith and Hope," is an inspirational album made up of two discs and is the artist's twenty-ninth studio album.

The 62-year-old has been a staple in the country music scene for over 40 years now.

Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, along with Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman from Little Big Town, will all perform some of Reba's song during the celebration. The three ladies are all big fans of Reba and are surely beyond excited to perform in her honor.

Another honoree at the "ACM Honors" will be Dolly Parton. She will receive the Gary Harber Lifting Lives Award. This award is presented to those who are devoted to improving lives through the power of music and are committed to serving others. Brad Paisley will be pretending Dolly with her award, and he will also be performing some of her songs during the event.

Last year, Dolly Parton raised close to $9 million for victims of the Gatlinburg wildfires. After that incredible amount of money was raised by her "My People Fund," she had the following to say:

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the people who have donated from all over the country and to my friends who donated their time, their talent, and money for My People,” Parton said.

Cliffie Stone Icon Award

One of the biggest awards at the "ACM Honors" is the Cliffie Stone Icon Award. This year, it is being presented to George Strait. The award is given to someone who has advanced the popularity of country music through contributions in recording, songwriting, touring, production, film, television, literary works, philanthropic contributions and other goodwill efforts.

Alan Jackson and Chris Stapleton will take the stage to present the Cliffe Stone Icon Award to the one and only George Strait. The two musicians will also perform some of Strait's songs during the annual awards show.

For those interested in watching, "ACM Honors" will be on CBS on Friday, September 15 at 8c.
