What an incredible evening.
On Sunday night, artists big and small came together to celebrate the best in country music at the Academy of Country Music Awards. While there was plenty of rootin’, tootin’ fun at the award show, the ACM Awards made sure to pay tribute to those slain at the 2017 Route 91 Harvest Festival.
Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Maren Morris, and Thomas Rhett opened the show with an inspiring message about the healing power of music. So beautiful.
Another noteworthy moment came when Carrie Underwood graced the ACM Awards stage. This marked the blonde songstress’ first televised performance since receiving more than 40 stitches after a face injury!
