A New Hampshire concert venue was nominated for a ACM Award. It was among stiff competition, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Once again the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire was nominated for a big award in the Country music world. The venue had an ACM Industry Award nomination for Outdoor Venue of the Year. The award ultimately went to the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, in Colorado.

Other nominees included the Greek Theatre in California, Innsbrook After Hours in Virginia, Rose Music Center in Ohio, and The Wharf Amphitheater in Alabama.

The ACM Industry Awards were not handed out during the televised ACM Awards show. Instead, the Industry Awards usually get their own special night in Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium in the fall. The event was delayed due to COVID-19 concerns.

Bangor's Darling's Waterfront Pavilion was twice nominated for a similar award in 2014 and 2016. The venue was twice nominated for an ACM Award for Large Capacity Venue of the Year.
