The 54th Academy of Country (ACM) Music Awards announced Industry Award winners on Monday, May 20th, and Mohegan Sun Arena was once again named “Casino of the Year” for large capacity venues. This is the seventh time Mohegan Sun Arena has been awarded an ACM award in the last 12 years. It is also the 16th national award for the 10,000-seat Arena that’s gearing up for a summer line-up that so far includes Toby Keith, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert.
“We have such a strong calendar of Country music throughout the year, and it’s in no small part due to the incredible relationships we have with so many great acts, many of which started here in the Wolf Den” said Tom Cantone, Senior Vice President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment in a statement. “These awards are a tribute not only to our commitment to providing the top names in Country music and their fans, but is also a credit to the talented entertainment team we have here at Mohegan Sun. We’re a top producer of live entertainment in the industry, with Mohegan Sun Arena consistently among the highest grossing and top ranked venues in the world.”
Voted on by professionals with the Academy of Country Music, the large capacity category honors the behind-the-scenes industry professionals and venues who contribute so much to the artistry, success and longevity of Country music.
