Dolly Parton to Host 57th Annual ACM Awards


Dolly Parton has been announced as the host of the 57th Annual ACM Awards. The announcement comes a day after she was nominated for induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The annual will return to their long time home of Las Vegas on March 7.

The move back to Las Vegas comes along with other changes for the ACM Awards. The show will be held at the new Allegiant Stadium and broadcast commercial-free at 8pm (EST) on Amazon’s streaming Prime Video.

This year’s event will be in-person, despite the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. The 2021 ACM Awards, which were hosted by Keith Urban and Mickey Guyton, featured a mix of live and pre-recorded performances due to the COVID-19 pandemic, much like the delayed 2020 edition, hosted by Urban alone.

Parton, who previously co-hosted the 2019 CMA Awards with Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood, will replace Keith Urban after his two years as host of the ceremonies. In addition to her Rock Hall nomination, Parton also has the album Run, Rose, Run coming March 4, which will be accompanied by the novel of the same title.

Nominations for the 2022 ACM Awards will be revealed next week.
