Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton To Co-Host 2023 ACM Awards

The Academy of Country Music, Prime Video, and Dick Clark Productions have announced that global superstars Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks will host the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards.

The event, to be held on May 11 at 8 p.m. EDT, will stream live exclusively for a global audience across 240+ territories on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas.

The full rebroadcast of the ceremony and performances will stream the next day for free on Amazon Freevee.

This marks the first time Brooks will take the stage to 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, who is one of the world’s most honored and revered artists of all time and follows her recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

“I am thrilled to return to host the ACM Awards, this time with my friend Garth,” said 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,” she added.

“Anyone with Dolly Parton makes a fantastic couple,” said Brooks.
