Among this year’s honorees are Glen Campbell, Crystal Gayle and the late Eddie Rabbitt.

Campbell, who’s currently in the final stages of Alzheimer’s disease, will get the Career Achievement Award, which “honors artists who have advanced the popularity and acceptance of country music through their endeavors in the entertainment industry in multiple areas during the preceding calendar year.”

Gayle, along with The Statler Brothers and Tanya Tucker, will receive the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award, which acknowledges artists who have been pioneers in the country music genre.

Rabbitt and frequent Campbell collaborator Jimmy Webb will be honored for their songwriting contributions with the Poet’s Award.

The Special Awards winners will be saluted at the 10th Annual ACM Honors at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium this fall, which will be televised for the first time ever as a special on CBS.

The 51st ACM Awards, meanwhile, will be broadcast live from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena this Sunday, April 3, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
