Country stars shine in Vegas at Academy of Country Music awards

Country stars shine in Vegas at Academy of Country Music awards

The New Zealand-born singer picked up the award of Entertainer of the Year, paying special tribute to his actress wife and their two daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret, in his acceptance speech.

The 54th Academy of Country Music Awards will take place tonight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Keith is reportedly going to perform a song called "Burden".

McEntire says women in country music are working hard but "they're being overlooked right now". "And when I look into your eyes/ I know why people died for it/ Freedom, loving you feels like freedom". Aldean earned the Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award. "Tequila" also won song of the year for songwriters Dan Smyers (a Wexford native), Jordan Reynolds and Nicolle Galyon (Shay Mooney didn't write the song). This year's "ACM Flashbacks" will feature performances by Brooks & Dunn with Luke Combs, and George Strait with Miranda Lambert.

Miranda Lambert seemingly shaded her ex-husband Blake Shelton by updating the lyrics to her song Little Red Wagon at the 2019 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on Sunday (07Apr19).

Carrie Underwood is one of the biggest stars in country music, so it's no surprise that she would be the one who sparkled the brightest today on the red carpet at the ACM Awards.

This year's show will air on CBS.

Host Reba McEntire, marking a record 16th time in the job, wasted no time in addressing one of the evening's touchy subjects - the lack of women nominees in some top categories.

'Miranda Lambert just sang "got the hell out of Oklahoma" with Blake Shelton in the room and I have so [sic] much [sic] respect [sic] #ACMAwards'.
