Amazon Prime Video has announced the return of the Academy of Country Music Awards, which will livestream exclusively for a global audience in 2023 from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas. The 2023 awards show is set for Thursday, May 11, 2023. Additional details will be confirmed in the months ahead.
The renewal comes on the heels of the 57th annual awards, which was the first major awards show to stream live exclusively for a global audience on Prime Video, Amazon Music, Amazon Fashion, Amazon Freevee, Amazon Live, and more. Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said: “We are thrilled to once again bring the Emmy Award-nominated Academy of Country Music Awards to our global audience. The 2022 show gave viewers an immersive, fan-first nonstop event, showcasing the ability to create dynamic experiences across Amazon even after the live show ends. We are excited to join with the Academy of Country Music and MRC for 2023 once again and to help redefine the award show experience for fans.”
The 58th Academy of Country Music Awards marks a return to Texas for the first time since the 50th ACM Awards at AT&T Stadium in Arlington in 2015. Ford Center at The Star in Frisco opened in 2016 and serves as the state-of-the-art practice facility for the Dallas Cowboys, as well as the home for many major sporting events throughout the year. The 58th ACM Awards will be the first awards show to take place at Ford Center.
