acc-awards-2016-logo-v2-1kAnother awards show is now behind us.  If you missed any of the American Country Countdown Awards which aired from 8-10 p.m. tonight (Sunday, May 1) on the FOX television network, you missed a good show.  We had a lot of great performances,starting with Jennifer Nettles, Cam and Martina McBride;  and a lot of well-known folks jumped in to take part as presenters. Loved seeing Toby Keith ‘s Tribute to Merle Haggard!  I’m not sure how they fit that much entertainment into a two-hour time slot, but they did it!  In addition to the great opening number, we saw performances form Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Chris Janson, Thomas Rhett, and so many others. If you didn’t see it all, we do have a complete list of the winners for you.
