R.A. (RAC) Clark, Executive Producer of the Academy of Country Music Awards, has been appointed the interim Executive Director of the Academy, effective immediately.
Clark has been associated with the Academy – and with country music – throughout his 38 year producing career. In addition to producing the Academy of Country Music Awards live on the CBS Television Network since 1999, he has executive produced many Academy TV specials, TNN’s Prime Time Country, and much more. He is the son of one of the founding members of the ACM Awards telecast, Dick Clark, the late television and broadcasting pioneer.
“My work with the ACM over the years has included some of my most professionally-fulfilling projects. I look forward to stepping into this interim role and supporting the legacy of the Academy,” said RAC Clark.
