Academy of Country Music Awards returning to Las Vegas

The Strip is going country once more, big time.

The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards show is set for March 7 at Allegiant Stadium, as announced Thursday by Prime Video and international entertainment company MRC.

For the first time, the event will be live-streamed exclusively, on Prime Video, in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the U.K. This is the first awards show to be live-streamed exclusively. Information regarding tickets will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We are thrilled to return to Las Vegas to celebrate country music’s Party of the Year in this incredible brand new stadium and on the Prime Video streaming service for the first time ever,” Academy of Country Music CEO Damon Whiteside said in a statement. “We can’t thank the city of Las Vegas and Allegiant Stadium enough for welcoming us for the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards — a party so big only a stadium can hold it!”

The event has previously been staged at Mandalay Bay Events Center (now Michelob Ultra Arena), MGM Grand Garden Arena and T-Mobile Arena. The event honors the top performers and new artists in country music. The telecast has featured such unique collaborations as the Backstreet Boys with Florida Georgia Line, Lady A with Stevie Nicks, and Carrie Underwood with Steven Tyler.

The most recent show in April was recorded at several locations in Nashville, including the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.
