Following on the heels of the announcement that named Country Thunder ‘Festival of the Year’ at the 44th annual International Entertainment Buyers Association conference, the 23 year long festival has once again been recognized by entertainment industry professionals. Country Thunder has also been nominated for ‘Festival of the Year’ at the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards.
The ACM Industry Awards are voted on by the Academy’s professional members. The categories honor the behind-the-scenes industry professionals and venues who contribute so much to the artistry, success and longevity of country music. Industry Award and Studio Recording Award honorees will be recognized at the 9th Annual ACM Honors event which will take place September 1st at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Everyone at Country Thunder is both honored and ecstatic to be among the Industry Award nominees at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. We count being named alongside the other amazing nominees as a win in itself,” said Troy Vollhoffer, executive producer of Country Thunder. “We are also very excited CMT is returning to Country Thunder. With the festival selling out the past three years, CMT’s coverage gives fans that cannot experience the event unprecedented access to THE event of the summer.”
CMT will once again serve as Country Thunder’s exclusive national television partner, providing contests and content across its television, internet and social platforms. CMT, the leading television and digital authority on Country music and entertainment, will bring fans behind-the-scenes access to some of the biggest names and brightest stars in country music. Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and many more will be performing at the premier camping and lifestyle event of the summer in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, July 23rd-26th.
