In addition to joining Parton as co-hosts for the live show, Allen and Barrett will join on video to unveil select nominations for the ACM Awards on the @ACMawards Twitter account.

“Reigning ACM New Male Artist of the Year winner Jimmie Allen and reigning ACM New Female Artist of the Year Gabby Barrett will co-host the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards side-by-side with Dolly Parton, pairing two of today’s most exciting new artists in the genre with one of the world’s most beloved music icons,” he added.
