They're calling it country music's "biggest party of the year", and I'll just have to take their word for it. "To the fans out there, you are fantastic". She also won best country song for "Space Cowboy" and best country solo performance for "Butterflies". She was joined onstage by Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Mickey Guyton and Maddie & Tae - the performers all wore blue dresses and sang in unison.

Dan + Shay were among the early winners, with their hit "Tequila" scoring song of the year.

Urban, 51, took home the night's most coveted prize, entertainer of the year, after having been nominated nine previous times since 2005 - a year before he and Kidman married.

The star-laden three-hour show marked an upbeat return to celebrating country music after last year's awards assumed a sombre note following the October 2017 mass shooting, also in Las Vegas, that killed 58 people at a country music festival.

Single Record of the Year "Down to the Honkytonk", Jake Owen "Heaven", Kane Brown "Meant to Be", Bebe Rexha feat. No women were nominated for songwriter of the year.

Male artist of the year went to Thomas Rhett.

For Everton , victory would see them move up a place into 9th, and a point behind 7th-placed Leicester. A long throw was nodded to the back post by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jagielka poked it home.

Ashley McBryde, who won new female artist of the year, also was memorable: almost in tears, she strummed her guitar and beautifully sang "Girl Goin' Nowhere".

Florida Georgia Line opened the show with Jason Aldean, performing their song "Can't Hide Red".

Aldean, who was performing when shooting broke out, received the ACM artist of the decade award.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban attend the 54th Academy Of Country Music Awards at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino on April 07, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Clearly, this night is one for the books.

The show is being hosted by Reba McEntire.
