First round of performers announced for 2022 ACM Awards

The first round of performers for the upcoming 57th annual ACM Awards has been announced.  Organizers of the event, set to take place March 7th from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, say they have more than 20 musical performances confirmed for the awards ceremony.

On Tuesday (February 15) the ACM revealed Kelsea Ballerini, Walker Hayes, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett and Chris Stapleton will all take the stage for solo performances. In addition, first time ACM performers Parmalee and Blanco Brown perform their collab of “Just the Way” with Brooke Eden; and Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde will team up for “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.”   More performers and presenters will be announced soon.

This year’s show — co-hosted by Dolly Parton, with Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett — will be a two-hour commercial free event, marking the first major country awards show in history to be exclusively live streamed.  The 2022 ACM Awards kicks off on Prime Video March 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
