ACM AWARDS IN LAS VEGAS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 53rd Annual ACM Awards were in Las Vegas last night.

Jason Aldean taking home Entertainer of the Year! (third year in a row)

Miranda Lambert snags  Song of the Year for “Tin Man,” and Female Vocalist of the Year! She holds the record for the most ACM wins with 31.

Chris Stapleton was also a big winner, taking home Album of the Year for “From A Room: Volume 1,” as well as Male Vocalist of the Year! (third year)

Reba did a superb job with the scripted jokes, which made me think she would do very well if her tv show ever comes back.

Carrie Underwood performed her new song “Cry Pretty” right after she jumped into a tub of sparkles.

The show had the underlying theme of honor and respect, in memory of the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shootings last year.
