The Academy of Country Music Awards honored the biggest names in the world of country this Wednesday. Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, and Tenille Townes dominated the list of winners, taking home two awards each.
This year’s ACM Awards took place on multiple stages in Nashville, Tennessee on September 16th. Keith Urban hosted the event, while the list of performers included Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris, and Miranda Lambert. Taylor Swift joined them for the first time in seven years, and delivered the first live rendition of her song “Betty”.
The highest honor of the evening, entertainer of the year, was shared by Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood. This was the first tie in the history of this category. Rhett also came out victorious in one more category—best music video of the year, with “Remember You Young”.
The list of major winners also included Luke Combs, who won awards for best male artist and album of the year. Maren Morris and Tenille Townes both picked up two awards, including the event of the year, for their work with The Highwomen.
