Is Taylor Swift making a country comeback already? Kind of – though the pop star isn’t actually working on any new country tunes.
Swift is among the stars being honored with the special 50th Anniversary Milestone Award at this year’s ACM Awards. Also being recognized: Brooks and Dunn, Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire and George Strait.
The honorees were chosen because of milestones they’ve reached in their careers: Brooks and Dunn have won the most ACM Awards in the past 50 years with a total of 27. Garth Brooks is the most awarded Entertainer of the Year winner with six trophies and 21 ACM awards overall. Chesney has earned 11 ACM Awards including four for Entertainer of the Year. Lambert is the most-awarded solo female artist of all time. McEntire is the most awarded Female Vocalist winner. Strait has won an impressive 21 ACM trophies over four decades.
And Swift? She’s the youngest Entertainer of the Year winner in history – taking home the coveted award in 2011 at just 21.
The Milestone Awards will be presented during the 50th annual ACM Awards, airing Sunday, April 19, on CBS. We’ll be looking for you to be dancing in your seat, Swift!
