With humble beginnings in 1964, the Academy of Country Music® began as a way to celebrate country and western music and musicians based primarily on the West Coast. Founded by Tommy Wiggins, Eddie Miller, Mickey and Chris Christensen, the academy aimed to celebrate West Coast artists such as Glen Campbell, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Tex Williams and more. As the years passed, the first official awards ceremony took place in 1966, hit the television screens in ’72 and has only continued to grow since, putting country music in the spotlight. Today, the ACM Awards celebrate their 59th year in style in The Lone Star State.
