Dolly Parton Hosts American Country Music Awards 2022

Here's everything to know about how and where to tune into country music's biggest night — hosted by Dolly Parton, no less.

Country music fans have a big night ahead of them, as the 57th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards are set to take place this evening in Las Vegas — with country music darling Dolly Parton taking on the awards show's hosting duties.

Parton will be joined by co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett for the live-streamed awards ceremony. And as if the 2022 ACM Awards weren't already expected to be a history-making night (Miranda Lambert's record-tying 16th nomination for Female Artist of the Year — which rivals only Reba McEntire — is definitely a highlight), the show will also make history as the first major awards show to be broadcast as a live, streaming-only event with Amazon Prime Video.

Beyond her role as host, Parton will also be honored during the ceremony with a tribute from Kelly Clarkson, who will perform "I Will Always Love You" as an ode to the music icon.

With a lineup of performers that includes Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Brittney Spencer, Carrie Underwood, Chris Young, Eric Church, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan and more country music royalty, the 2022 ACM Awards are shaping up to be one of music's biggest nights of the year.
