The three-time reigning Entertainer of the Year and current Entertainer of the Year nominee will receive the ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award and perform during “country music’s party of the year.”
“This is probably one of the coolest awards I’ve ever been given,” said Aldean. “My heroes are on this list, something I can’t really even wrap my head around being part of. But, man I’m proud to be getting it – it’s for everyone who stuck with us and supported us through the years.”
