Images + Recap of the ACM Awards 2014 Co-Hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan at MGM in Las Vegas

The 49th annual ACM Awards co-hosted by country music stars Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton did not disappoint! One of my favorite interviewee’s Justin Moore won best new artist, Jason Aldean took home the male vocalist of the year award, Kacey Musgraves won 2014 album of the year, Miranda Lambert was named female vocalist for the fifth straight year and she also won single of the year for her hit song “Mama’s Broken Heart”. Both she and George Strait paid tribute to the greatest living country musician on the planet, the one and only Merle Haggard. The show ended with LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell awarding the retiring George Strait with the top honor of the night, Entertainer of the Year!

One of my favorite photos of the night! Entertainer of the year, George Strait; female vocalist of the year Miranda Lambert and the one and only Merle Haggard. Merle not only celebrated his 77th birthday tonight, but was paid tribute to by George and Miranda at the 49th annual ACM Awards. The audience even sang happy birthday to the country legend. Here’s to many more, Merle!
