The 54th Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards) took place on Sunday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas — and delivered big.
The annual celebration was hosted by country icon Reba McEntire who, only days prior, released her 33rd studio album, Stronger Than the Truth and invited more of the biggest stars in the industry to share the stage.
Out of the 14 award categories, Nashville-based country duo Dan + Shay took the lead with three wins for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Duo of the Year.
Somebody Like You superstar Keith Urban took home the award for Entertainer of the Year — his tenth ACM award overall — while up-and-comer Kacey Musgraves earned herself two awards.
Among the various other winners included up-and-comer Thomas Rhett and Luke Combs, who won the award for New Male Artist of the Year.
The legendary Dierks Bentley also left the ceremony with a smile on his face. The singer shared the Music Event of the Year award with the Brothers Osborne, thanks to their collaborative efforts on 2018’s Burning Man single.
