Dolly Parton Set to Host 2022 57th Annual ACM Awards

Country superstar, Dolly Parton is set to host the 2022 57th Annual ACM Awards, scheduled for March 7th in Las Vegas.


Just one day after being nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dolly Parton was announced as the next host of the 2022 ACM Awards show. Previously, Parton hosted the award show with fellow icons, Reba and Carrie Underwood in 2019. However for the last two years, Keith Urban hosted the annual event in Nashville, Tennessee.

Parton will be joined by fellow co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett. Both Allen and Barrett earned their respective new artist of the year awards in 2021. Pairing two of the most exciting new artists in the genre with a living legend is as exciting and monumental as it sounds!

This year, the show returns back to Las Vegas at a new venue, the new Allegiant Stadium. The show will broadcast commercial-free at 8 p.m. ET on Amazon’s streaming Prime Video, which is another departure from its norm.
