51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards Winners List

The 51st annual Academy of Country Music Awards took place on Sunday, April 3rd at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. Co-host Luke Bryan opened the show with a performance of his hit song “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Everyday.” He then introduced his fellow co-host Dierks Bentley and the night continued with exceptional performances from Dolly Parton, Katy Perry, Nick Jonas, and Kelsea Ballerini. The biggest award of the night, Entertainer of the Year, was presented by none other than heart-throb Tom Hiddleston to Jason Aldean.
