Meanwhile, Aldean was recently announced as a performer at the 2016 ACM Honors, which will air for the first time on CBS on Sept. 9 from Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
Aldean will be honored with the Triple Crown Award, which is given to an artist who has won New Male/Female Vocalist of the Year, Male/Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. Aldean won Entertainer of the Year earlier this year, and he was previously honored with the New Male Vocalist of the Year in 2005 and Male Vocalist of the Year 2012-2014. The Triple Crown Award has been awarded to six artists in the past: Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Mickey Gilley, Merle Haggard, Barbara Mandrell and Carrie Underwood.
