Ricky Skaags received the Pioneer Award.

"This is pretty awesome. I've won Grammys and a lot of ACM Awards, CMA Awards and bluegrass awards, but this is the first time I've really, what I consider an honor for I guess being an innovator in the early 80s,"

The event kicked off at 7 p.m. and included performances by Kellie Pickler and Hunter Hayes among others.
