Legendary broadcaster and longtime Academy of Country Music Awards Executive Producer Dick Clark passed away on Wednesday, April 18th, at the age of 82. Mr. Clark was not only the star of the iconic American Bandstand, but he was also a great champion for country music.

"Dick Clark's dedication to the world of music—and the country format in particular—helped raise the profile of the Academy of Country Music, beginning with him hosting the Awards in 1969 and later, as our Executive Producer," said ACM CEO Bob Romeo. "He was an energetic leader in establishing the Academy as a television presence and helped expand the reach of the genre overall, always bringing new talent to the viewers he loved so much. We are proud that his lasting legacy continues four decades later, with his son, R.A. Clark, producing our Awards. He will be greatly missed."
