The Academy of Country Music has named a special award in honor of the late Merle Haggard. The ACM Merle Haggard Spirit Award will “honor uncompromising artists in the spirit of Merle Haggard while acknowledging a man who has figured prominently in ACM history.”

The inaugural award will be handed out at the 10th annual ACM Honors, taking place next Tuesday at Nashville’s Ryan Auditorium, and airing September 9th on CBS at 9pm ET.

So far, the recipient of the ACM Merle Haggard Spirit Award hasn’t been announced.
