This year's ACM Award nominees for Album of the Year include Black by Bentley, Dig Your Roots by Florida Georgia Line, HERO by Morris, Ripcord by Urban and The Weight of These Wings by Lambert.

Country music will also crown its best newcomers. Last year, Underwood went sheer in a stunning Davidson Zanine gown on the red carpet while Lambert accessorized her gorgeous yellow Christian Siriano dress with a pair of hot pink Joyce Echols stilettos - featuring a toy gun and holster accessory!

In honor of the ACM Awards, ACM Lifting Lives is putting on a series of events across Las Vegas to raise money and improve lives through music.

The night featured comedy, including a play off the Academy Awards mishap during the best picture victor announcement in February. The presenters, David Copperfield and Nancy O'Dell, mocked the Oscars flub of Best Picture and initially joked the award was going to "Emma Stone, La La Land".

"Thank you to my lovely wife, my attractive pregnant wife", said Rhett, whose wife was in the audience.

Throw in his musical tribute to Chuck Berry at the beginning of the show, and it's safe to say that Luke's night probably did in fact go much too fast. "Cats and dogs are going to make out". If you're wondering what time and channel the ACM Awards are on, you've come to the right place! "Is politics your next career?"

As he performed his latest hit "Body Like a Back Road" on the ACMs, he surprised his fiancée by joining her in the crowd - and while fans may have thought it was an adorable moment, it was rather easy to see that she wasn't the most excited about putting their relationship on display.

Also in the running; Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Carrie Underwood.

"I don't have a whole lot of words except for: Everyone in this category are my idols", said Rhett, who was teary-eyed and paused throughout his speech.

Little Big Town won the Vocal Group of the Year award, shortly after playing "Happy People". We've watched country stars like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert grow and evolve into the super successful artists they are today.

Kellie Pickler presented new female vocalist of the year Maren Morris, who took the stage to sing "I Could Use a Love Song".

"[We're going to] drink a little more this year, get a little more insane", Bentley promised in an interview with ET earlier this week.

"I just wanna be in Lady Antebellum's band", Kimberly Schlapman yelled.
