LAS VEGAS (mocsnews.com) – Country music singer-songwriter Dolly Parton will be hosting the 2022 Country Music Awards in Las Vegas
Parton’s co-hosts have yet to be announced, but they will be in charge of hosting a new format of the show. The awards show will take place on March 7 via live stream on Amazon Prime Video, completely commercial-free.
“There is no one better than Dolly to represent the ACM Awards brand and country music on a global scale as we move to streaming and show the world that ‘this is how we country’ by delivering one of the most exhilarating and innovative shows in our history to audiences worldwide,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music, in a statement.
According to a post made by the ACM Awards Instagram account, “It takes a global superstar to host Country Music’s Party of the Year.”
Parton has won 13 ACM awards, including entertainer of the year and top female vocalist. She has also already hosted the awards show, back in 2000.
Parton expressed her excitement to host the 57th Country Music Awards in a press release on Thursday saying, “Watch for us because we’re going to have some fun.”
With her career taking off in 1967, Parton shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. On March 4, she will be releasing a new book “Run, Rose, Run” with author James Patterson, as well as an accompanying album.
She was also announced as a first-time nominee for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this week.
