VIDEO: Reba McEntire ACC Awards Tribute By Miranda Lambert & Kelly Clarkson
Reba McEntire was honored with the Nash Icon Award at Monday’s American Country Countdown Awards (the ACC Awards) in Nashville, with Miranda Lambert and Kelly Clarkson teaming up for an unforgettable tribute performance before McEntire’s speech. Check out the video below!
Lambert and Clarkson took the stage to perform “How Blue” and “Take It Back” before being joined by McEntire herself for “Fancy.” Kix Brooks, the host of “American Country Countdown,” then presented McEntire with the first ever Icon Award to honor her lifetime of contributions to country music. She thanked Miranda and Clarkson, and said she felt “very blessed” to be singing country music and sharing it with fans.
Clarkson, of course, is married to McEntire’s stepson Brandon Blackstock, making the tribute a family affair. The two women have been close for years. Before McEntire became Clarkson’s stepmother-in-law, the pair filmed “CMT Crosswords” together and re-recorded Clarkson’s hit song “Because of You” as a duet. McEntire also has close bonds with Lambert, whose husband Blake Shelton is managed by Blackstock.
McEntire is a country music legend, and it was only fitting that she was honored by Lambert and Clarkson on Monday. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think!
