Toby Keith To Be Honored With Special Tribute At ACM Awards

Legendary singer-songwriter Toby Keith will receive a special salute to at the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards by country superstar Jason Aldean.

The ACM Awards will honor the late Country superstar with a special rendition of “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” performed by Aldean. Toby Keith was a 14-time ACM Award recipient, including multiple wins for ACM Top Male Vocalist and ACM Album of the Year, and was named ACM Entertainer of the Year twice, in 2002 and 2003.

Hosted by 16-time ACM Award-winning icon, Reba McEntire, the 59th ACM Awards will feature additional performances and collaborations from a star-studded lineup, including Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Noah Kahan, Avril Lavigne, Miranda Lambert, Post Malone, McEntire, Parker McCollum, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Nate Smith, Chris Stapleton, Gwen Stefani, and Lainey Wilson.

The ACM Awards will be free to stream live exclusively for a global audience across 240+ countries and territories on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday, May 16 at 8 p.m. EDT / 7 p.m. CDT / 5 p.m. PDT. A Prime membership will not be required to watch live. Fans can also watch the show on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch.

The full rebroadcast of the 59th ACM Awards will be available to watch after the show on Prime Video and will be available to stream the next day on Friday, May 17, starting at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT on the Amazon Music App and for free on Amazon Freevee.

This isn’t the only tribute Keith has received lately. Last year, the late icon learned that the University of Oklahoma (OU) would be presenting him an Honorary Degree at their 2024 Commencement.

The country legend was so honored and happy to be acknowledged by the University that he loved and sent his children to for their education. Walking the stage this Spring was something he was looking forward to before he tragically passed away on February 5.

At last weekend’s OU Commencement events, his daughter Krystal Keith proudly stood in to accept the honorary degree and share recollections of her father’s love and loyalty to the University.
