Many of the first round of performers were nominated for ACM Awards. That trend continues with this list. Ballerini is up for Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. Smith is nominated for New Male Artist of the Year.

From the first round of performers, Lainey Wilson and Chris Stapleton are up for five awards each. Jelly Roll will go into the night with four nominations.

How to Watch the Party of the Year

Like last year, the ACM Awards will stream live exclusively on Amazon Prime. The show will start at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on May 16. Those who don’t have a Prime subscription don’t have to worry. Through the partnership of the Academy of Country Music and Prime Video, the awards show will be free to stream for everyone. As a result, anyone with an internet connection can tune in and watch Reba host the ACM Awards for the 17th time.
