Lee Brice's performance of "I Drive Your Truck" was quite emotional. I definitely teared up! Ummm wow! That's all I have to say about Eric Church's performance of "Give Me Back My Hometown". That song is truly powerful and shows how much of a musical genius Church really is. Two of NBC's The Voice judges hit the stage (Blake Shelton and Shakira) to perform Shakira's new song "Medicine"! Taylor Swift, nominated for EOTY, announced the first winner of the evening. Country's biggest duo Florida Georgia Line took home the Academy of Country Music Awards for Vocal Duo of The Year.
Let me take a #selfie? Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan wanted to try and compete with Ellen Degeneres's Oscar selfie she made go viral in seconds. Of course the two buds joked and said they were the most famous celebrities in the room.
What did y'all think of Lady Antebellum's GOLDEN performance with Stevie Nicks? Definitely a night Hillary, Charles, and Dave will never forget. No country music award show is complete without a performance from Keith Urban. The American Idol judge gave viewers a beautiful performance "Even The Stars Fall 4 U" off of his newest album Fuse.
There is just somethin' bout Kip Moore…. ;)! Moore seemed very happy to be performing on the ACMs stage this year. The New Artist of the Year nominee is getting ready to release a new album very soon.
CONGRATULATIONS to Academy of Country Music's New Artist of The Year award recipient Justin Moore! "I was beginning to think there was a height requirement to win this award," Moore said. Moore broke into tears telling his fans he will never forget this moment.
Jason Aldean was looking very sharp as he performed his newest single "When She Says Baby." Home Sweet Country can not wait to see Aldean in a few weeks here in New Jersey. Girl power! Miranda Lambert won Single Record of the Year: : "Mama's Broken Heart". I love watching that music video! The show then went "Automatic" when Lambert performed her newest single. Who else is excited for her new album?
Song of the Year went to Lee Brice for "I Drove Your Truck". The beautiful and emotional and hit single for Brice, is based off of a true story. Country power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill were all smiles as they performed "Meanwhile Back At Mama's" together.
Country music fans, this is how we roll. There was so much going on during Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line's performance over at Mandalay Bay. Their good buddy Jason Aldean took home the win for Male Vocalist of The Year shortly after AGAIN! I am a very proud Aldean Army member right now ;)!
The Band Perry officially got to the top of their mountain taking home the win for Vocal Group of The Year. "We accept this for the climbers," Kimberly Perry said. The family trio is so well deserving of this award. Love their music and yes, you have to go see them on tour this summer with Blake Shelton.
Now, Hunter Hayes has made quite a statement over the past few months with his new song "Invisible". Wow, that was a strong and beautiful performance. While fighting child hunger, Hayes will attempt to break the Guinness World Record of concerts played in a 24-hour period next month. Home Sweet Country will definitely be at his New Jersey stop!

Kacey Musgraves is now holding the Academy of Country Music Award for ALBUM OF THE YEAR! "Im really proud to be a woman representing country music," Musgraves said. Well Kacey, I am very happy you are representing country music as well.
I had some serious chills while Dierks Bentley and Sheryl Crow performed "I Hold On" and especially when George Strait and Miranda Lambert payed tribute to Merle Haggard. What a special moment having Garth Brooks join them on stage! Congratulations to the king on winning Entertainer of the Year!
We can't wait to watch the ACM Awards 50th Anniversary show live from TEXAS next year!
