‘Sin City’ has just had a glittering evening! The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards, or ACM Awards, were held in Las Vegas on March 7. We have a complete list of the winners who brought home this year’s “signature hat” trophy.
The two-hour celebration was hosted by Dolly Parton. She is well-known in the country music industry. Additionally, Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett co-hosted the event, which was broadcast live on Amazon Prime Video.
About ACM Awards
The first country music awards show, the ACM Awards, debuted in 1966. Since then, it has given awards to the biggest talents, including “Artist of the Decade,” “Entertainer of the Year,” and other accolades for singers, albums, songs, and a variety of other categories.
Just so you know, the iconic hat trophy for the prize debuted in 1968. The hat trophy currently used by the Academy is significantly more streamlined and contemporary. This award is produced by Society Awards in New York.
This year, the 57th ACM Awards were held at the Las Vegas Allegiant Stadium. Amazon Prime Video broadcast the awards.
