Hosted by Dolly Parton alongside co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett, the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards was a two-hour concert event livestreamed globally 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 win in particular 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 Entertainer of the Year). Her two wins tonight bring her total ACM Awards count 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 a piece.
Morgan Wallen took home his first ACM award after he was banned from the 2021’s ACM’s for getting caught on video using a racial epithet in a loud conversation with friends.
