2006 ACM Winners

2006 ACM Winners
No triple crown winner this year, Kenny Chesney walked away with the Entertainer of the Year award. Though neither Keith Urban nor Rascal Flatts walked away empty handed.

This years show was not without some controversy, Reba made a comment saying “If the Dixie Chicks can sing with their foot in their mouth, I can host this danged thing”. Needless to say this did not go over well with the fans of the Dixie Chicks, but garnered laughs on the show. The fiery redhead had come under fire from the Chicks when they made the comment earlier in an interview that they didn’t want to have their CD in a player with Reba or Toby Keith.

The performances by the nominees lived up to previous years, full of energy and emotion. The highlight of the night was the Big & Rich song 8th of November, especially when the veterans came onto the stage and lent their presence to the night, reminding us all of the fighting going on overseas.

Vince Gill was honored this year with the Academy of Country Music/The Home Depot Humanitarian Award. Past winners have included Reba McEntire (2001), Martina McBride (2004) and Neal McCoy (2005). The honor allows the artist to build a playgroud in the city of his/her choosing to benefit the community.
