The ACM Awards were last night and what a show it was! Overall, I thought it was well rounded with a lot of great moments, great performances and more. Hats off to all the winners, Reba did a fantastic job hosting once again as well.
Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves, Dan + Shay and Thomas Rhett were the big winners last night. My favorite performances included both by Luke Combs (one of which was with Brooks & Dunn), Ashley McBryde, Dan + Shay, Keith Urban and Little Big Town!
