Reba McEntire, who is hosting the show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, said it is disappointing that a female act isn't in contention for the coveted ACM award.

The two Texans began "Run" - a classic Strait hit - with the King of Country singing "If there's a plane or a bus leaving Dallas, I hope you're on it". "Baby girl, I love you so much", Urban said as Kidman, whom he'd kissed numerous times before collecting his prize, looked on lovingly. I love you guys ...

Lambert ended the song by saying, "That's the King, y'all!" She also sang "Southbound" off her most recent album "Cry Pretty".

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

Musgraves' critically acclaimed "Golden Hour" won album of the year and best country album at the Grammys in February.

On Sunday, Underwood joined "This Is Us" actress Chrissy Metz on stage to perform "I'm Standing With You".

OR senior guard Maite Cazorla finished with nine points, six rebounds and four assists in the final game of her collegiate career. The senior knocked down three triples in a two-minute span, including one to tie it at 74-74 with just over five minutes to play.

"It was so cold it froze us women out of entertainer of the year", she quipped.

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".

Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line opened the show with a rousing performance of Can't Hide Red but some on social media took offense to Tyler Hubbard's American flag suit, branding it a "disgrace" besmirching a sacrosanct national symbol.

"Thank you so much".

Ahead of the show, he and Kidman joked about their marital bliss on the red carpet, where they offered some advice to PEOPLE's livestream cohost Michael Ray, who is set to marry fellow singer Carly Pearce in October. "I've already cried at it, I'll try not to cry", she said ahead of her husband's performance.
