This morning the Academy of Country Music announced the winners of awards that won’t be included in the live broadcast on April 1st, and Kenny Chesney is one of the early winners:

Crystal Milestone Award

Kenny Chesney, four-time ACM Entertainer of the Year, has sold more than 10,500,000 tickets on his 11 national tours, selling out stadiums across the country. His successful shows have promoted the entire genre to delighted fans while helping other country acts and cross-over artists gain exposure nationwide. The Academy is honoring Kenny for this remarkable achievement.

Past recipients of the Crystal Milestone Award include Garth Brooks and Jennifer Nettles.

Be sure to watch the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards when it airs live on CBS on Sunday, April 1, at 8 p.m. ET.

    KENNY IS THE MAN! Often imitated, but never duplicated! Can’t wait til BOTS hits Indianapolis July 28th! It will be my 7th time seeing him and I don’t plan on missing a show of his for my entire life as long as I am able! KENNY concerts are not the best time of my summer, they are the best time of my LIFE!

    What did Jennifer Nettles win for? Was Kenny honored already or will it happen at the ACM’s and Reba will give it to him after he performs?
