Jimmy Webb has been added to the lineup of performers for the Academy of Country Music - 11th Annual ACM Honors from Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium. The evening celebrates the special honorees and off-camera category winners from the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards. The televised special will tape this Wednesday and air Friday, Sept. 15 on CBS.
