Country Stars With the Most ACM Awards Wins [PICTURES]
Fifty-plus years ago, the Academy of Country Music kicked off their first-ever awards show, honoring the best and brightest in country music. Over the years, the ACM Awards have moved from Los Angeles, Calif.; to Las Vegas, Nev.; to Arlington, Texas; and back to Las Vegas, celebrating thousands of country artists and industry professionals in hundreds of categories.
The ACM Awards have been hosted by iconic stars such as Reba McEntire and dynamic duos including Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton. They've debuted historic performances (Dolly Parton and Katy Perry's 2016 rendition of "Jolene" and Garth Brooks and George Strait's 2013 performance of "The Dance" and "The Cowboy Rides Away" in honor of Dick Clark, for example). They've introduced new stars, eternal legacies and almost every artist you've loved over the years.
Throughout more than five decades of the ACM Awards, it only serves to reason that there would be a few repeat winners, especially when you have legends like Strait, Brooks and McEntire in the mix. Click through the photo gallery above to see which country stars have won the most ACM Awards; one of the most-awarded winners has 29 ACM trophies and could be on her way to 30 when the 2018 ACM Awards take place on April 15!
The 2018 ACM Awards are set to take place in Las Vegas and air live on CBS beginning at 8PM ET. The ceremony will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
