“The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is deeply honored to receive this prestigious award from the Academy of Country Music,” said Chris Boleman, President and CEO of the Rodeo, in a statement. “After some challenging years in our industry, this ACM nod is proof of the resilience of our volunteers, staff, partners and artists, whose commitment and commitment to the rodeo has never diminished. And while we are preparing for a long-awaited comeback of our annual event, we look forward to welcoming everyone again in 2022 for the 90th anniversary celebration of the rodeo. “
