CMT will honor Alan Jackson as “Artist of a Lifetime” during its 2022 “Artist Of The Year” celebration that will premiere at 9p/8c on October 14, on CMT.
“I believe I’ve made more videos than just about anybody, and I know how important they have been in bringing my songs to life for the fans, so thank you, CMT, for all the years and for this sweet honor. I’m very proud,” Jackson said in a statement.
Jackson’s peers will celebrate his three-decade career in country music during the event. The Newnan, Georgia-native is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and is a Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee. Throughout his career, Jackson has notched 35 No. 1 hits and nearly 60 million sales worldwide, with songs including “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow,” “Chattahoochee” and “Don’t Rock The Jukebox.”
He was honored as a “CMT Giant” in 2008 and received the inaugural Impact Award at the 2014 CMT Music Awards.
“For more than thirty years, his traditional sound, iconic voice and beloved catalog of music has captivated audiences across the globe, and his talent as a recording artist and songwriter are simply unmatched,” CMT Producers said in a statement.
Filmed at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the “Artist Of The Year” event will also honor Carly Pearce, Cody Johnson, Kane Brown, Luke Combs and Walker Hayes. There will be unique tribute performances, special guests and congratulatory moments.
Additional performers, presenters and honorees will be announced in the coming weeks.
