Lee Brice, Hunter Hayes, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Kellie Pickler, and Keith Urban have also been added to the already impressive bill of the television special, which airs in May. LL Cool J and actor Chris O’Donnell will host.
Rascal Flatts, Kris Kristofferson, the late Jack Clement, producer Dann Huff and songwriter Shane McAnally are also among those receiving off-camera awards from the Academy of Country Music this year.
The legendary artist will receive the Crystal Milestone Award during this year’s ACMs. Haggard is also the subject of the upcoming tribute album “Working Man’s Poet,” featuring many top country stars.
Nicks, Church, Keith and Lady Antebellum are the latest round of performers announced for the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards on April 6.
In honor of its 45th anniversary, Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee” album is getting reissued this month. And as a bonus, a second disc will feature his 1970 album “The Fightin’ Side of Me.” See the full track listing for both discs.
In a video uploaded on YouTube, Keith fans filmed themselves to release the details of his Shut Up & Hold On Tour 2014.
The upcoming album project will feature select Doobie Brothers hits performed by the band and former lead singer Michael McDonald, as well as numerous country guest stars.
With Tim McGraw hitting No. 1 (again), Garth Brooks about to release a new box set, and others like Joe Diffie and Marty Brown gaining new fans, we have to wonder: Is country music in the midst of a 1990s comeback?
All hail Madonna. The Material Girl rakes in the big bucks to earn the honor of highest-paid musician of 2013.
“’Last Living Cowboy In This Town’ is more along the stuff that I normally do,” Keith said. “Talking about this old man that’s in the modern day and he’s still hanging on to the last century values and fashion, and it’s comical.”
Among the tracks is “Before We Knew They Were Good,” a song Keith said is “about kids growing up becoming special people in life,” and a tribute to his late bandleader Chuck Goff.
Long before Toby Keith was a familiar name atop the Billboard charts, he was fighting to leave his mark on country radio listeners.
The massive concert held Saturday in Norman, Okla. also featured Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, Mel Tillis, John Anderson, Sammy Hagar, Krystal Keith, Kellie Coffey, and Carrie Underwood.

“As soon as I knew [Garth Brooks] was going to participate, I called Willie [Nelson] and Ronnie Dunn and Sammy Hagar, and it started growing.”
One of Toby Keith’s tour buses caught fire before dawn Monday morning (July 1) near Indianapolis. Luckily no one was hurt.
Between his restaurant chain, liquor brand and smart investments, Toby Keith is a “one-man cash machine” and among music’s most successful businesspeople.
“If I sit down and just go album to album through the years,” Keith says, “I can tell where I was in my life — good times, bad times, happy times, struggling times, successful times.”
