2023 ACM Awards: The Best Photos From the Show
The 58th annual Academy of Country Music Awards hit the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday (May 11).
It was good night for “wait in the truck” collaborators HARDY and Lainey Wilson, who each won four awards at the 2023 ACMs, including album of the year for Wilson thanks to her LP Bell Bottom Country. After those two, Cole Swindell nabbed three awards and Ashley Gorley netted two.
Co-host Dolly Parton delivered a memorable show-wrapping performance of “World on Fire,” the lead single from her first rock album, appropriately titled Rockstar. The star-studded album follows Dolly’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022.
Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson delivered a memorable duet together on “Save Me,” followed by a solo Wilson on “Grease.” Jelly Roll and ACM co-host Garth Brooks are both part of Billboard’s inaugural Billboard Country Live event on June 6-7. Jelly Roll will perform at Marathon Music Works in Nashville on June 6, while Brooks will sit down for an intimate Q&A at the same venue on June 7.
