The Academy of Country Music is celebrating a surge in membership, reaching an all-time high as it welcomes over 5,000 professional members to the Class of 2024.

Newly accepted and renewed members qualify to vote for the 59th ACM Awards, which makes its grand return to Texas this May and will stream exclusively on Prime Video for a third consecutive year.

Additionally, Academy members gain access to a suite of benefits, including early access to tickets for ACM events, discounts on industry partner events, industry data insights, monthly educational and networking events, plus more.

“Today is an extremely proud day for the Academy of Country Music as we celebrate record-high membership with more than 5,000 members worldwide,” said ACM CEO Damon Whiteside. “The Academy’s membership becomes more diverse and inclusive, as well as international, every year, reflecting the landscape of the genre, and allowing the ACM to better serve as a powerhouse advocate for artists and our industry all over the globe.”

“I couldn’t be happier to celebrate and welcome our new and renewed members today and look forward to working with them in the year ahead,” added Haley Montgomery, Senior Manager, Awards and Membership.

To celebrate, new ACM members, including Colbie Caillat, Hannah Ellis, The Kentucky Gentlemen, Ian Munsick, Matt Stell and more, visited the Academy’s Nashville headquarters in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood. Peep the vid below.
