blake-and-luke-awards1I hope every country music fan got to see the ACM award show tonight. It a great show. Here is a little about the show, and get a list of the winners up here – just in case any of you missed it.

As we all know, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton are hosting again this year. Always some great comedy from these two.

1977229_10152123730529102_3882012033074849607_nIt seems as if everyone who sings country music is in Vegas tonight. Florida Georgia Line opened the show with “Stay”, and then we were immediately taken outside to a swimming pool full of bikini-clad women, and a lot of red solo cups. And, of course, more music – Brad Paisley gave us the entertainment for the pool party.

Other performances throughout the evening included Blake Shelton, featuring Gwen Sebastian; Brett Eldredge, George Strait, Lee Brice, Eric Church, Justin Moore, Shakira, Lady Antebellum and Stevie Nicks, Keith Urban, Kip Moore, Luke Bryan , Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Toby Keith, Hunter Hayes, Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley and Sheryl Crow. I loved that we got to hear some real country music, with the tribute to Merle Haggard, winner of the Crystal Milestone Award.
