Co-host and reigning New Female Artist of the Year Gabby Barrett and co-host and reigning New Male Artist of the Year, Jimmie Allen will also join together for a special two song performance at the top of the show.

When the nominations were announced earlier in February, Miranda Lambert walked away with five including a record-tying 16th Female Artist of the Year nomination. Reba McEntire is the only female artist to be nominated in that category that many times.

Carrie won the triple crown in 2010 

Miranda will vie for the award against Gabby Barrett, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, and Carly Pearce. Miranda is also nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year, where she is credited as an artist and producer, and Video of the Year.

Luke Combs and Chris Stapleton are also nominees for Entertainer of the Year.

A win for Miranda, Chris or Luke in that category will also see them clinch the coveted Triple Crown Award, which has only been awarded to seven other acts -  including Carrie.

The Triple-Crown Award distinguishes the achievement of an artist, duo or group upon receiving an Entertainer of the Year win, plus wins in an act's respective New Artist (Male, Female or Duo or Group) and Artist (Male, Female or Duo or Group) categories.

Taylor Swift has also received her first nomination at the ACMS since 2018 as her single I Bet You Think About Me is nominated for Video of the Year. Blake Lively received two nominations for producing and directing the video, marking her first ACM nomination.

The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Dolly Parton and co-hosted by Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett, will stream live on Prime Video and without commercial interruption, on Monday 7 March 2022, 8/7c.
