The Academy of Country Music announced their first group of winners before the April 1st award show yesterday. The full list of radio winners for the 47th annual ACM awards are listed below. The winners have all been invited to a private ceremony on March 31st in Las Vegas to receive their awards.
Due to time restraints of the live award show, radio winners will unfortunately not be broadcast on air. They will get their awards a day early, though, ahead of the award show at MGM Grand. ACM producers do plan on inviting one personality of the year winner to participate during the telecast.
