The 2022 ACMs was hosted by Dolly Parton at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. She was joined by the 2021 ACM New Male Artist of the Year winner Jimmie Allen and last year’s ACM New Female Artist of the Year Gabby Barrett. Both were up for the same category again this year.

While most nominees had to wait to find out if they’ve beat the competition, a couple lucky young artists knew they were heading home with new hardware. The Academy announced Parker McCollum as the New Male Artist of the Year while Lainey Wilson was named the New Female Artist of the Year.

“Let’s goooo!! An honor to be a part of this year’s show,” Wilson, 29, commented on the ACM’s Instagram post announcing the news on Saturday, March 5. She was also nominated for Song of the Year with her single “Things A Man Oughta Know.”

Both new Artists of the Year performed at the Las Vegas show on Monday. The ACM Awards also included performances from Brittney Spencer, Brothers Osborne, Carrie Underwood, Chris Young, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Jordan Davis, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Mitchell Tenpenny, Walker Hayes, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Parmalee and Blanco Brown featuring Brooke Eden as well as Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde.

All the hosts went on to take the stage as well. Kelly Clarkson honored Parton, 76, with a rendition of “I Will Always Love You” while the legendary singer teamed up with Kelsea Ballerini for a duet. Barrett, 36, and Allen, 22, also brought the house down.
