Gabby & Jimmie Join the Spotlight

You read that right! The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards will be hosted by the country stars. The two-hour show will stream live without commercial interruption on Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. When exactly? It takes place on Monday, March 7th at 8 pm EST from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. This will mark the first time a major award show has been live-streamed exclusively.

Gabby and Jimmie each have several ACM nominations under their belt; including best new artists in their respective categories.

“The Academy has a long history of highlighting the biggest stars in Country Music alongside today’s rising stars. This year that will spotlight even further;” Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, said in a statement. “Reigning ACM New Male Artist of the Year winner Jimmie Allen and reigning ACM New Female Artist of the Year Gabby Barrett will co-host the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards side-by-side with Dolly Parton; pairing two of today’s most exciting new artists in the genre with one of the world’s most beloved music icons.”

Dolly Parton Will Host the ACM Awards

Last week, it was first announced that Dolly Parton was set to host the event. “I am so excited to be hosting the ACM Awards on March 7 from Vegas. Watch for us because we’re going to have some fun,” she said in a statement.

“There is no one better than Dolly to represent the ACM Awards brand and country music on a global scale as we move to streaming and show the world that ‘this is how we country’ by delivering one of the most exhilarating and innovative shows in our history to audiences worldwide,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.
