Country’s biggest stars gathered in Las Vegas, Nev. for the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards) Sunday night to honor the best musical acts of the year.
Performances by Kelly Clarkson, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and George Strait rocked the house at the MCM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday. Hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, some of the biggest winners of the night included Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Jason Aldean and the host, Bryan, himself.
Lambert led the pack with three wins for Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year, for “Over You.” Her husband, Shelton, also walked away with the award for their duet Song of the Year.
Of course, glitz and glam were rampant on the red carpet before the awards ceremony. Taylor Swift, Caroline Bryan and Jana Kramer were head-to-toe in gold while other ladies like Shania Twain, Kaley Cuoco, Faith Hill and Lambert kept it simple in black. The gentleman of the night also came out dressed to the nines, with Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Aldean ditching their cowboy boots for formal attire.
The ACM Awards, not to be confused with the CMA Awards, were first held in 1966 to honor the country music industry’s best acts of the previous year. For 2013, over 1.1 million fans cast their votes for both Entertainer of the Year, which was awarded to Luke Bryan, and New Artist of the Year, which was Florida Georgia Line.
