Details About The 2023 ACM Awards

It’s that time of year once again…time for the ACM Awards!

This year’s ACM Awards were held on Thursday, May 11. The ceremony started streaming on Amazon Prime Video at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT.

Garth Brooks and Dolly Parton co-hosted the ceremony. This was Parton’s second consecutive year as a host of the ACM Awards…and Brooks’ first time as a host of any awards show…ever!

HARDY scored the most nominations this year, followed by Lainey Wilson. Last year’s Entertainer of the Year, Miranda Lambert, also earned several nominations.

The ACM made history this year by nominating seven artists for Entertainer of the Year. Historically, only five artists have been nominated in the category.
