So much has changed for the 2022 ACM Awards, but the list of nominees looks very similar to years past — with some major exceptions.

Chris Young leads the nominations with seven, including Album of the Year and Single of the Year. Miranda Lambert tied a record set by Reba McEntire with her 16th Female Artist of the Year nomination, and she also earned four other nominations, while first-time nominee Walker Hayes received five nominations.

Each category and the respective nominees was revealed in a tweet from the ACM Awards official account. Luke Bryan is the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year. He took home his third trophy in the category — but his first in six years — last year. Maren Morris, Carly Pearce and Lee Brice each took home two trophies last year.

The 2022 ACM Awards will not be televised on a broadcast network. For the first time ever, the show is streaming on Amazon Prime. The two-hour show promises no commercial breaks but a similar pattern of performances and awards. Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett will join Dolly Parton as hosts of the ACMs.

The 2022 ACM Awards will air on March 7 at 8PM ET from Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium.

Remember: The best way to watch the 2022 ACMs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!
