Dolly Parton was just announced as the host for the upcoming 2022 ACM Awards, and now we know who will be sharing the duties with her. The country music legend will be joined by rising stars Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett for the live broadcast of the show, which will stream exclusively on Prime Video.

In addition to hosting, both Allen and Barrett will announce the ACM Awards nominees, via video, on Thursday, February 10, on the ACM Awards Twitter account.

“The Academy has a long history of highlighting the biggest stars in country music alongside today’s rising stars, and this year that will spotlight even further,” says Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “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.”

Parton previously said she was thrilled to host such an iconic show.

“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,” Parton said.

Whiteside also praised Parton for being willing to helm the awards ceremony.

“We are honored to welcome Dolly Parton back to be the centerpiece of this landmark 57th Academy of Country Music Awards show at Allegiant Stadium. Dolly is the most iconic and multitalented artist of all time, and we are proud that she is a friend and supporter of the Academy, a previous host, and a 13-time Academy of Country Music Award recipient,” Whiteside praised. “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.”

The 2022 ACM Awards will stream live on Prime Video Monday, March 7 at 8:00 PM from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
