The 54th Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards — one of country music’s biggest nights — took place on April 7 at MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Fan-favorite country stars took the stage, and no other than country diva Reba McEntire hosted the show for the 16th time.
Highlights included performances by Carrie Underwood (who hosted the 2018 Country Music Association (CMA) Awards alongside Brad Paisley last fall), as well as Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban, among others. But what really caught fans’ attention? The unique collaborations between a wide range of acts such as Kelly Clarkson’s performances with both Dan + Shay and Jason Aldean, the recipient of this year’s ACM Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award.
Let’s not forget the entertainment that happened before the show, though, as country music’s best celebrity couples made their grand entrance on the red carpet. Here were some of our favorites that stole the show — several of which are newly engaged.
