ACM Awards: Thomas Rhett, Walker Hayes, Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde to Perform

We now know who some of the performers will be at the 2022 ACM Awards, which already promises to be a star-studded show. Thomas Rhett, Walker Hayes will take the stage, along with a collaboration by Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde.

Pearce and McBryde will perform their current single, “Never Wanted to Be That Girl.” While Rhett and Hayes have yet to reveal what they will perform, we do know that Parmalee and Blanco Brown will perform “Just the Way,” with a special appearance by Brooke Eden, and BRELAND will perform “Praise The Lord.” Other performers for the evening will include Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Stapleton and Maren Morris, with more performances and collaborations expected to be announced in the near future.

Hayes spoke out about the honor on social media.

Chris Young leads the list of nominees with seven nods, including Album of the Year for Famous Friends, and Musical Event of the Year, for his collaboration with Kane Brown on the title track.

“It’s always awesome to have a nomination, period, because there have been plenty of years in my career where there wasn’t one,” Young told Billboard. “So I’m excited anytime there is a nomination, and especially what happened this year. I’ve never been the most-nominated artist at an awards show, and especially not one the caliber of the ACMs.”

Pearce received four nods, including both Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with McBryde, and Female Artist of the Year.

“When I get these calls, I almost don’t know what to say,” Pearce said of being recognized by the Academy of Country Music. “It always surprises me, because I know how good my peers are – and respect them so much. This been such a journey, and I take none of it for granted ever. Each one of these nominations means the world to me.”

Dolly Parton will host the ceremony alongside Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett. The 2022 ACM Awards will air live from the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, without commercial interruption, on Monday, March 7 on Amazon Prime Video.
