The ACM Awards are an annual event in the country music world, and certainly one of the biggest nights for music fans across the country. But, just in case you missed it, we've rounded up some of the top performances of the night!
1. Florida Georgia Line
Not only were country music group Florida Georgia Line nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year, they also gave an awesome performance of their hit song “Meant To Be", featuring Bebe Rexha. The number one single made it to Billboard's Hot Country Song chart for 14 consecutive weeks, breaking the record for longest streak at number one with a female lead in the chart's history which was previously held by the 2016 hit “Better Man" by Little Big Town.

2. Miranda Lambert
Miranda Lambert definitely brought the heat (literally) to last night's ACM Awards! After winning the award last night for Song of the Year with “Tin Man", Lambert later took the stage to put on a “hot" performance of her rock-inspired “Keep Of The Flame", complete with flames burning on monitors behind her. And, what made this performance even more spectacular is the fact that Lambert played a guitar signed by the legendary Loretta Lynn! Lambert also won her second award of the night for Female Vocalist of the Year, successfully holding the record for most ACM wins in history!
3. Keith Urban
Country star Keith Urban nabbed four nominations during last night's ACM Awards and earned the award for Vocal Event of the Year for his song “The Fighter,“ featuring Carrie Underwood. The singer also also hit the stage with a performance of “Coming Home," his latest single featuring pop star Julia Michaels from his upcoming album Graffiti U. The dup popped onstage with their matching red outfits and their performance was the perfect combination of pop with a country soul!

4. Carrie Underwood
Perhaps the most anticipated act of the night, Carrie Underwood certainly came through with an emotional performance of her latest single “Cry Pretty"! A long journey of healing after a fall outside her house last November has had Underwood out of the public eye for a bit. However, her first public appearance since then has proved the country star is back in full force! With a silver dress complete with glitter tears under her eyes (that soon transformed into real ones by the end of the song!)
