Soaring Eagle Casino Gets Nominated for Academy of Country Music Award
Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort has been nominated for an Academy of Country Music Award.
The ACMs have nominated the Mount Pleasant casino for “Casino of the Year – Theater,” in recognition of its entertainment facility. Soaring Eagle has been nominated for the award three times, but hasn’t actually won the nomination.
May 11 will see the 58th ACM Awards ceremony in Frisco, Texas. Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks will serve as the hosts for the event. Starting at 8 PM, it will be exclusively live-streamed on Prime Video.
Soaring Eagle is Vying for its First ACM Honor
Soaring Eagle is one of the five nominees in its category, alongside Golden Nugget in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Deadwood Mountain Grand in Deadwood, South Dakota, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, Resorts World Theatre in Resorts World Las Vegas, and Deadwood Mountain Grand. The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort, founded in 1998, is owned and operated by the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe. It has been graced by some of the biggest country music artists in the last decade, including Luke Bryan, Vince Gill, Dustin Lynch, and Kane Brown.
Soaring Eagle offers two performance venues, namely a 3,260-seat indoor music hall and the Soaring Eagle Outdoor Arena, which can accommodate more than 11,000 general admission guests and over 5,000 reserved seating.
While Michigan casinos also host notable performers, Soaring Eagle’s music destinations are widely regarded as the premier destinations north of Detroit. The casino hosts an annual “Outdoor Concert Series,” featuring performances by renowned artists such as Jelly Roll Morton, Willie Nelson, James Taylor, and others.
