Dolly Parton & Garth Brooks To Host 58th ACM Awards
The Academy of Country Music, Prime Video, and Dick Clark Productions have announced that Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks will host the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards. The awards ceremony will stream live exclusively for a global audience across 240+ territories on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday, May 11 at 8 p.m. EDT/7 p.m. CDT/5 p.m. PDT.
The 58th ACM Awards will mark the first time Brooks will host an awards show, coming ahead of his Las Vegas residency and off the heels of his world tour. It’s the second consecutive year that the show will be hosted by Parton.
“I am thrilled to return to host the ACM Awards, this time with my friend Garth,” shares Parton. “While I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with him throughout the years, I can’t believe we’ve never had the chance to work together. In addition to getting to see all this great new talent in country music, I am excited to have the chance to premiere the lead single from my upcoming rock album on the show!”
“Anyone with Dolly Parton makes a fantastic couple,” says Brooks.
“The ACM Awards is the world’s biggest and most groundbreaking country music awards show and the only one to stream live across the globe thanks to our partners at Prime Video, so there is no host pairing more appropriate than music’s most iconic global superstars, Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks,” says Academy of Country Music CEO and ACM Awards executive producer Damon Whiteside. “We couldn’t be more excited to bring this legendary pair together for the first time ever as ‘Country Music’s Party of the Year’ heads to the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters. From exclusive superstar performances to unexpected collaborations to the industry’s most exciting emerging talent, fans are in for an unforgettable night that can only be seen on the ACM Awards stage!”
The 58th Academy of Country Music Awards is produced by Dick Clark Productions, with Raj Kapoor, Barry Adelman, and Fonda Anita serving as executive producers and Whiteside serving as executive producer for the Academy of Country Music.
A limited number of tickets for the 58th ACM Awards are still available for purchase on SeatGeek. Nominees, performers, and presenters for this year’s show will be announced in the coming weeks.
