Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he wants an opportunity to bring the Academy of Country Music awards back to AT&T Stadium.

What Jerry wants, he usually gets.

AT&T Stadium hosted the 3 1/2-hour 50th annual spectacle in April and it lived up to its hype with a crowd of more than 70,000 and a record-setting television audience.

“We are so proud of the way that evolved and the way that came off that we certainly want an opportunity to look at it and maybe do it again. … No, it’s not on the calendar, but I can get it on there real quick,” said Jones, who was the keynote speaker at a luncheon for The Salvation Army Wednesday at AT&T Stadium.

Next year’s ACM will be held in Las Vegas.
