 Live at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Reba McEntire hosted the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards on April 7. Country music legend Reba McEntire has now hosted the ACM Awards 16 times, naming last night her “Sweet 16.” To kick off the night, duo Dan + Shay’s number one hit “Tequila” won Song of the Year. Shortly after performances by Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert, and Luke Bryan, Dan + Shay were presented with their second academy award of the night, Single of the Year. The next award of the night was Duo of the Year, and guess what, Dan + Shay are three for three, as they end their performance with Kelly Clarkson by winning another one.

 The next award of the night was Male Artist of the Year which was presented to country music star Thomas Rhett. Then later winning the ACM Album of the Year, with her new album Golden Hour was multiple-time Grammy winner Kasey Musgraves. Legendary country musician George Strait presented the first awarded Artist of the Decade Award after being named after Dick Clark to Jason Aldean.
