Miranda Lambert's Performance Medley Lights Up ACM Awards

Luke Bryan

"I have to say that this award goes out to any woman, any girl or anybody, really, that is maybe being told that her perspective or her style is too different to work", Musgraves said as she accepted to coveted award. "We are all winners tonight".

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.

Keith is reportedly going to perform a song called "Burden".

"I am going to give this to Dan + Shay so they can go home with four", he said. Chris Stapleton's performance was also a highlight.

While this wasn't the first time Lambert, 35, has sung the updated rendition of the hit song, she has never done so with Shelton present - seemingly shading the "Voice" judge in front of his longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani in the process. It's a remarkable feat, and Lambert's performance on Sunday (April 7) was a reminder of her prowess as a singer, songwriter and performer.

In addition to the performers, the star-studded list of presenters will see Lauren Alaina, Beth Behrs, Clint Black, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jessie James Decker, Hunter Hayes, Jay Hernandez, Lady Antebellum, Midland, Nancy O'Dell, Danica Patrick, Carly Pearce, Dennis Quaid, Michael Ray, Cole Swindell and Wilmer Valderrama handing out awards. So, at this point, you'd imagine that there's no love lost between them. Underwood, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and McEntire will sing onstage.

Jason Aldean kicked off the awards show with a fun performance featuring the hit-making duo Florida Georgia Line.

Others set to perform Sunday include Blake Shelton, George Strait, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Combs and Little Big Town.
