THE ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC awarded FAITH HILL and TIM MCGRAW the ACM Career Achievement Award during a special presentation at the kick off to their "Soul2Soul Tour 2007" in OMAHA.
Last year, HILL and MCGRAW's "Soul2Soul Tour 2006" was the highest-grossing country music tour of all time; the most attended concert tour of the year, in any musical genre, at 33 venues nationwide; the only country music tour to ever sell out three consecutive nights at the STAPLES CENTER in LOS ANGELES; the highest-grossing concert tour of the year, in any musical genre, at 26 concert venues across the country; and the most attended country music tour ever at 17 concert venues, including NEW YORK's MADISON SQUARE GARDEN -- the tour ultimately swelled to 73 performances in 55 cities to meet the overwhelming demand.
"The Academy wanted to honor FAITH and TIM's unique and special achievements in 2006," said ACM Executive Director BOB ROMEO. "They truly excelled at every level, from touring to charitable endeavors to film and television, and in the process brought attention to country music throughout the world."
