ACM Award Re-cap & Complete List of Winners 2021


2021 ACM Awards: Luke Bryan takes home top award as Keith Urban declares ‘Nashville is back’

Miranda Lambert and pop singer Elle King kicked off the show with a powerful duet

Dan + Shay had a big night at the Academy of Country Music Awards

Winning Duo of the Year and performing a soulful version of their latest hit, “Glad You Exist.”

However, the pre-taped song aired out of sync during the CBS broadcast, prompting some fans to speculate on Twitter that the duo was lip-synching the performance at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café.

The performance video, when tweeted out by the ACM Awards, did not have the same lag as the broadcast.

The duo addressed the issue on Twitter citing an audio sync issue with the television broadcast.
