2023 ACM Arena of the Year Nominee: Simmons Bank Arena
Simmons Bank Arena was nominated for the first ACM Arena of the Year award since the arena’s construction.
The Academy of Country Music nominations were announced on April 13, 2023, and Simmons Bank has much to celebrate! With the announcement, Simmons Bank Arena in North Little Rock, Arkansas was nominated as Arena of the Year for the first time since the arena’s construction as Alltel Arena back in 1999.
Simmons Bank acquired naming rights in October 2019 and hit the ground running on the 18,000-seat multi-purpose civic center. Since 2019, the 28,000-square-foot venue has hosted world-class artists such as Harry Styles, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Patti LaBelle, George Strait, and Reba, in addition to family-friendly acts and sporting events like Disney on Ice and the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Simmons Bank is also a partner of Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas with the Simmons Bank Plaza as a key feature on the property.
