After a two-year run in Nashville, the Academy of Country Music Awards returns to Las Vegas in 2022.
The show airs live from Allegiant Stadium on March 7, 2022, a Monday evening. Initially for major rewards programs, the program is streamed live exclusively via Amazon Prime Video.
Producers presented a pair of pandemic-era Nashville shows in 2020 and 2021, using limited or no-audience performances at the Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and Bluebird Café.
Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL franchise, opened last summer.
The Academy of Country Music is teaming up with production company MRC to present the 57th ACM Awards to Amazon. Details, including the host, artists and nominees, are expected to be announced in the coming months.
In recent years, the award programs have aired simultaneously on network TV and streaming platforms, but one show had yet to fully cut the cable from the broadcast plans.
The move comes as the ACMs parted ways with the CBS television network earlier this year. Instead, CBS awarded the CMT Music Awards to network television, hosting the Nashville-based show on April 24, 2022.
