For those unfamiliar with the many years that the ACM Awards have aired, there’s a handful of highlighted moments from the show’s past you must see! Have you heard about the time Alan Jackson got pissed off when he was told he had to “play to a track” instead of playing live? He pulled one of the most amazing moments off at the award show to this day.
Instead of bitching and moaning about the circumstances and throwing a superstar fit, Alan agreed to play to the track- but not without removing his drummers sticks. Since the drummer was directly behind Alan in the video shot, the audience at home could tell right away that something was amiss.The lesson country music learned that day? Don’t piss off Alan Jackson and let him play live!
Many other infamous moments have gone on at the prestigious award ceremony, such as Loretta Lynn becoming the very first female to take home Entertainer Of The Year and the time George Strait played his very last concert at the ACM Awards and later took home the prestigious Entertainer of the Year Award.
