The 2023 show, hosted by Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, was a two-hour concert event which streamed live globally on Prime Video and the Amazon Music channel on Twitch. The night featured an all-star lineup of memorable moments, including 18 show-stopping performances from 25 artists, along with exclusive collaborations and unexpected moments that captivated fans worldwide. In the lead-up to the show, the Official ACM Awards Red Carpet Show streamed live on Prime, giving fans the party before the party and access to all the excitement from the carpet, along with special performances. 


The Academy’s highest honor, ACM Entertainer of the Year, was awarded to Chris Stapleton for the first time. His multiple wins at the 58th ACM Awards qualified him for the coveted ACM Triple Crown Award, celebrating artists who have won New Female/Male Artist of the Year, Female/Male Artist of the Year, and Entertainer of the Year. HARDY and Lainey Wilson led the night in total wins with four each, followed by Cole Swindell with three wins.

Now headquartered in Nashville, TN and boasting record-high membership of more than 5,000 worldwide, the Academy serves as a powerhouse advocate for Country fans, artists, and all facets of the business, as well as a supporter of philanthropic work through charitable partner ACM LIFTING LIVES, dedicated to improving lives through the power of music and providing aid in times of need, with a focus on health initiatives. 2023 was another monumental year for the Academy, with the 58th ACM Awards, hosted by global superstars Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, ranking as one of the most-watched awards shows of the year. 2024 will see the ACM Awards return in May to the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys in Texas for a second consecutive year and stream live for a global audience on Prime Video.
