The Academy of Country Music has revealed that the annual ACM Awards will return to Las Vegas for the 2022 awards ceremony.
The 57th ACM Awards will take place on Sunday, April 24, 2022. The decision to get back to Las Vegas marks a return to normalcy for the awards show. The ACM Awards have historically taken place in Las Vegas, but were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021.
The awards ceremony initially scheduled for the spring of 2020 was postponed and, eventually, held in the fall in Nashville. 2021's awards — hosted by Keith Urban and Mickey Guyton — marked the second time that Music City hosted the ceremony, with historic venues including the Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and Bluebird Cafe each serving as venues. Performances also took place at legendary locations including the Station Inn, Bridge Building and, in the case of Little Big Town, right on Broadway in downtown Nashville.
Now, Sin City will host the awards ceremony for the first time since 2019. More information about the 57th ACM Awards will be forthcoming, with the venue, ticketing and hotel information still to be announced,
