The Awards Show is the "biggest night in the bluegrass calendar". According to the International Bluegrass Music Association, "The awards recognize outstanding achievement and pioneering efforts in the genre as determined by professionals in the bluegrass music industry. Held annually since 1986, today almost two dozen awards are handed out to recognize the top achievements across the industry. The International Bluegrass Music Awards Show features outstanding performances by the best in bluegrass."
