Academy of Country Music Awards Background
The Academy of Country Music Award first came
about in the 1960s to help promote country music not only across the U.S. but also across the world. Its trademark "hat" trophy
was developed in 1968. In 1972, the award ceremony was televised for the first time ever on ABC. In 1979, the Academy teamed
up with Dick Clark Productions to produce the awards show. Dick Clark and Al Schwartz were producers while Gene Weed was the
director. Under their leadership, the show jumped from NBC to CBS, where fans can still catch the show today! In 2003, the
awards show moved from L.A. to Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. The show is now hosted at the AT&T Stadium
in Arlington, Texas, which additionally serves as the home of the Dallas Cowboys. In 2004, the organization added online awards
voting for its professional members.
