It was a big night for Dan + Shay, Kacey Musgraves, and Keith Urban in Las Vegas for the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards, or as 16-time host Reba McEntrie called it, "Reba Las Vegas!"


Dan + Shay were the big winners of the night, taking home 3 ACM awards, including the award for Song of the Year and Single of the Year with "Tequila,' as well as Duo of the Year. After winning their third award of the night, Shay Mooney said it was "probably the greatest night of my life, besides the night I married my wife and had a baby" [WATCH].


Kacey Musgraves wasn't far behind Dan + Shay though, with 2 ACM award wins for Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for Golden Hour. She dedicated her award for Female Artist of the Year to "any woman or girl, or anybody really, that is maybe being told that her perspective or style is too different to work. Just stay at it, it'll work out" [WATCH].


It was also an unforgettable night for Keith Urban, as he won his very first ACM Entertainer of the Year award. Keith also won the CMA Entertainer of the Year title back in November of 2018, making Keith country music's true top entertainer. He thanked his wife, Nicole Kidman, his daughters, Sunday and Faith, and his fans for the win [WATCH].
