Fox to Air First-Ever American Country Countdown Awards

The winter award season just got a little more crowded.

Fox, Cumulus and Dick Clark Productions announced today that they will be debuting the American Country Countdown Awards, which is a branch off of the long-running radio show “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks.”

The two-hour live concert event will broadcast from Nashville at 8 p.m. December 15 and promises to “honor the year’s best country music with awards, thrilling performances, special moments and additional surprises” when one of the industry’s biggest stars will be named the music’s first-ever NASH Icons award winner.

“Fans of the ‘American Country Countdown’ are some of the most loyal and passionate fans around, so it’s a natural next step to bring that popular brand to television,” said Simon Andreae, EVP of alternative entertainment for Fox. “Fox has a long history of big, bold music events, and we can’t wait to bring down the house in Nashville this December with some of the most popular names in country music.”

“Expanding our NASH brand and the audience for our iconic ‘American Country Countdown’ franchise to a national TV audience is an exciting example of how we’re committed to serving the needs of America’s rapidly growing passion for country music,” said John Dickey, EVP and Co-COO of Cumulus. “We’re also grateful to our partners, Dick Clark Productions and Fox, for making this possible.”

“The ‘American Country Countdown’ radio show is one of the most respected brands in country music, highlighting the most successful stars on country radio,” said Mike Mahan, Dick Clark Productions prexy. “Through our broadcast partnership with Fox and Cumulus, we are able to create an innovative and new television format honoring superstars and spectacular emerging talent that fuel American country radio.”
