AceShowbiz - Jason Aldean will be the latest recipient of the coveted Artist of the Decade trophy at the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards.
He'll collect it at the ACM Awards in Las Vegas on 7 April, and also perform.
The award recognises artists who dominate country music over the decade.
"This is probably one of the coolest awards I've ever been given," Aldean says in a statement. "My heroes are on this list, something I can’t really even wrap my head around being part of. But, man, I’m proud to be getting it."
"It's for everyone who stuck with us and supported us through the years."

Truly honored to be receiving the @acmawards Dick Clark Artist of the Decade award this year. Just wanna thank Country Radio and the Country Music fan base for all the support over the years! It has been a crazy and unbelievable ride to get here and it has changed my life. This is the proudest moment of my professional career and I hope we are just getting started! 🏆 #ACMawards
