ACM Awards Moves to Amazon, Will Become a Streaming Event

The Academy of Country Music Awards will no longer be airing on CBS and the awards show has found a new home.

The show will be moving to Amazon Prime Video for the upcoming 2022 ceremony, marking the first time that a major awards show will be streamed live on an SVOD platform, according to Deadline.

The ACM Awards have been airing on CBS since 1998, but thanks to the ViacomCBS merger, the network will begin airing the CMT Music Awards starting next year. That show will air on CBS in April, the same month that the ACM Awards usually air on the network.

“We’re excited to continue to expand our content offerings for Prime Video customers by being the exclusive home for the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2022 and honoring the best in country music,” said Vernon Sanders, co-head of television, Amazon Studios. “Reaching this milestone with our partners at the Academy of Country Music and MRC as the first major awards show to be live-streamed speaks to our dedication and commitment to continue to both entertain and innovate for our audience.”

“We are thrilled that the Academy of Country Music Awards are first to take this giant step toward the future of awards shows with Amazon Prime Video. This partnership, which reinforces our position as an innovative, progressive awards show, will deliver the broadest possible audience and, simultaneously, deliver massive value to our artists whose music lives inside this ecosystem, enabling fans to discover and stream music as they watch,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music.
