Miranda Lambert and George Strait Pay Tribute to Merle Haggard – VIDEO

Last Night, Garth Brooks honored Merle Haggard with the Crystal Milestone Award at the 2014 ACM Awards. In a tribute performance, country stars Miranda Lambert and George Strait sang “I’m A Lonesome Fugitive,” Haggard’s first hit, for the occasion.

And, because last night was also Merle Haggard’s 77th birthday, the crowd serenaded him by singing “Happy Birthday” as he made his way up to the ACM stage to accept his award.  It was one of our favorite moments of the evening.

Owner, President and General Manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones and the king of country music, Texas-born, and reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year George Strait, shared exciting news tonight at the 49th ACM Awards with an invitation fans to attend the largest celebration in country music history from the home of the Dallas Cowboys:  The 50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, Country Music’s Party of the Year®, to be broadcast LIVE from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.

“For our 50th Anniversary, we wanted to invite more fans than ever to our party,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “Tickets to the ACM Awards sell out in minutes, country fans make their vacation plans around our events. In 2015, we’ll celebrate with the biggest group of mega artists at ACM Party for a Cause and allow more music fans to experience the Awards by hosting it in the premier stadium in the country.”

“We couldn’t be more thrilled about the ACM Awards coming to AT&T Stadium next year.  It will be the first event of its kind at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.  The stadium was built to host world class events such as this, and it doesn’t get any bigger than the ACMs.  The excitement from fans across the country, our great fans in Texas, and this venue will provide the biggest and best stage available to showcase country music and its stars to the world,” said Jones.

“I won my first ACM in 1984, and to see a landmark event like the ACM Awards move to one of the biggest venues in the country to create a historical country music experience of this magnitude, it is a testament to the fans,” said George Strait, “I am thrilled to have been a part of the announcement of this milestone event coming to my home state of Texas.”  Strait took home the coveted, fan-voted ACM Entertainer of the Year award – the second of his career – shortly after the announcement was made.

Four-time ACM Award winners Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will return to co-host this super-sized night of incredible country music performances, which will cap off three days of events, including the 3rd annual ACM Party for a Cause®: 50 Years of Music & Memories on April 17-18, 2015 at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas. This two-day outdoor music event will include multiple stages for ongoing LIVE country music performances, interactive experiences, a family-friendly country marketplace with food trucks and vendors from around the country, and much more.
