The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards were presented Monday night at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, with Dolly Parton, Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett serving as co-hosts for the show.
Miranda Lambert took home the night’s biggest honor, winning the prestigious ‘Entertainer of the Year’ award. It’s Lambert’s first-ever win in the category, defeating fellow artists Luke Combs, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton and Carrie Underwood. Lambert missed her first ACM Awards in 17 years due to a commitment at the C2C Festival in Europe this week, but was able to share her gratitude via a video message.
Other big winners of the evening included Chris Stapleton, who won the ‘Male Artist of the Year’ award, and Carly Pearce, who earned the ‘Female Artist of the Year’ honor. Morgan Wallen’s ‘Dangerous: The Double Album’ earned the ‘Album of the Year’ award, and Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean earned the trophy for ‘Single of the Year’ with their No. 1 duet, “If I Didn’t Love You”.
The 2022 ACM Awards was live-streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime Video for the first time. The full ceremony and ‘special performances only’ rebroadcast will be available to stream on IMDb TV on March 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
