An exclusive invite-only red carpet event at Firefly Restaurant was held parallel to the Academy of Country Music 52nd Awards ceremony in April. PCB Entertainment, the organizers of Northwest Florida’s largest country music events, Gulf Coast Jam and Spring Jam, invited guests to a live-viewing party watch their favorite stars on “the big screen.”

Several of the winners of the ACM Award will be performing at Gulf Coast Jam in September this year. A three-day event in Panama City Beach, Gulf Coast Jam headliners will include Jason Aldean, the winner of ACM’s Best Entertainer of the Year, and Little Big Town, winners of Vocal Group of the Year. Local favorite, Luke Bryan, who hosted the awards show, will perform at Gulf Coast Jam on Sunday.

Sponsors, business- and media partners of Gulf Coast Jam celebrated and enjoyed live broadcast performances and the usual impeccable service and culinary delicacies at Firefly Restaurant.
