57th Academy of Country Music Awards Winners Announcement – Deadline
Hosted by Dolly Parton alongside co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett, the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards was a two-hour concert broadcast live worldwide on Prime Video tonight from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
One of the highlights of the show was industry veteran Miranda Lambert receiving the Entertainer of the Year award. What’s so special about this particular win is that it qualifies her for the coveted Triple Crown Award (New Female/Male Artist of the Year, Female/Male Artist of the Year and the year). His two wins tonight bring his total number of ACM Awards to 37, more than any artist in ACM Awards history.
Lainey Wilson led the night in total wins with three, followed by Lambert and Carly Pearce with two wins each.
Morgan Wallen won his first ACM award after being banned from the 2021 ACMs for being caught on video using a racial epithet during a loud conversation with friends.
