At the time, Jackson posted a thank you and apology for his absence on Instagram. “Just want to thank everybody at the ACMs for honoring me,” he wrote at the time.

“Special thanks to my daughter Mattie who accepted for me,” he continued. “And most of all thank you to all my fans for their prayers and well wishes as I continue to recover from a respiratory infection. I’m on the mend and will be back to normal soon!”
