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. This year the Industry Awards were presented to recipients at a private reception in Las Vegas on Saturday, April 2nd, the day prior to the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards.
