As the three-time consecutive winner of the ACM’s Entertainer of the Year, it comes as no surprise that has title is being elevated to Artist of the Decade.

"This is probably one of the coolest awards I’ve ever been given," Aldean says in a statement responding to the huge career milestone. “I’m proud to be getting it -- it’s for everyone who stuck with us and supported us through the years.”
