ACM Award Winners 2018


Last night was the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards. The show marked an emotional time for country music as Jason Aldean and others returned to the city six months after a gunman killed 58 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Oct. 2017 in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. But country musicians vowed to look forward and celebrate the healing power of music at the show.

Chris Stapleton led all artists with eight nominations and had a big night, taking home male vocalist of the year and album of the year, while Jason Aldean took the night’s top honor of Entertainer of the Year. Who else won? See below:
