ACM Honors Dolly and More Greats

Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, Don Williams, Buck Owens, Harlan Howard and music executive Jack Lameier were honored by the Academy of Country Music at a special ceremony in Nashville, Wednesday, June 20, hosted by Marty Stuart.

Dolly was presented with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award by her mentor and former duet partner Porter Wagoner. “I may be a pioneer, but I’m blazing new trails all the time, so don’t give up on me,” Dolly said. Pioneer Awards were also given in honor of the late Waylon Jennings and Harlan Howard, along with Don Williams, who did not attend the ceremony. Buck Owens, who died last year, was the recipient of the Jim Reeves International Award, while Jack Lameier was given the Mae Boren Axton Award for his years of service to the ACM. Trisha Yearwood, Rhonda Vincent and Ashley Monroe were among the performers at the ceremony, held at the Tennessee State Museum.
