With the show just a few weeks away, the 57th ACM Awards are rolling out the list of performers.

Set to air live from Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium on March 7th, the show will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

Of course, they already announced Dolly Parton as this year’s host (the only correct option), and she’ll be joined by co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett.

Miranda Lambert and Chris Stapleton lead the way, along with Chris Young, all picking up 4 nominations this year. Morgan Wallen will make his return to the award show circuit, too, racking up nominations for Male Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year.

You can check out the entire list of nominees HERE.

The first round of performers for this year’s show include Chris StapletonCarly PearceAshley McBrydeThomas Rhett, Maren Morris, and Kelsea Ballerini.

Breland is also set to make his ACM Awards debut performing “Praise the Lord,” and Parmalee will be joined by Blanco Brown and Brooke Eden for “Just the Way.”

Oh, and if you thought you could get away from hearing “Fancy Like?” Well think again, because Walker Hayes is also in the lineup and I would put money on him singing about “Applebeeeeeees on a date night.”

Of course, the ACM reigning Album of the Year winner Chris Stapleton will be a highlight of the night, as well as Ashley and Carly who will take the stage together to sing their current single “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”.

Other than that…so far, meh.
