Reba McEntire brings back a fashion statement while hosting ACM Awards

Reba McEntire brings back a fashion statement while hosting ACM Awards

"With respect and love for the victims, our friends, family and fans, we celebrate the music tonight", Aldean added.

On Sunday night, country music stars gathered for the annual ACM Awards, and viewers praised host Reba McEntire for putting politics on the back burner.

In October a lone gunman killed 58 people at country music's Route 91 Harvest Festival in Sin City, becoming the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

"Tonight we wanted to open the show with something that shows what it's like for our country music family to be back in Las Vegas for the first time since October 1", Aldean said, opening the show.

Carrie Underwood gave her first public performance since an accident in November left her with a broken wrist and a facial injury. "We thought about starting with a song, but it's a lot bigger than a single song".

Fellow singer and victor of three ACM Awards Miranda Lambert touched on Underwood's performance backstage after winning Female Vocalist of the Year.

After being out of the spotlight since late previous year due to a freak accident, Carrie Underwood took the stage for the first time in months and she definitely stole the show. Not to mention, it was Reba McEntire's 15th time emceeing the event, also known as "Country Music's Party of the Year". Aldean closed his speech by telling the audience: "We love Las Vegas".

He has five assists through the first three games of Boston's first-round matchup against the Leafs, which the Bruins lead 2-1. The news came as a surprise about 30 minutes before the Bruins and Leafs dropped the puck on Game 4 of their series.

"You just knocked it out of the park", Keith told Carrie about her performance.

Country music is making a major return to Las Vegas with the 2018 ACM Awards, six months after a lone gunman killed 58 people at a country music festival in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

After the show, Entertainment Tonight caught up with Carrie's fellow singers, who heaped praise on her for stepping back on the stage.

Many others posted about the pins and their presence at this year's ACM Awards with the hashtag #FansFirst, all honoring those who endured the life-changing even in a quiet, yet distinct way.

From how Underwood looked at the ACM Awards Sunday, it appears that the differences were in fact minimal, if they existed at all.

Sam Hunt won Best Single of the Year at Sunday night's ACM Awards, but the singer wasn't there to accept the coveted trophy. Don't get it twisted, though - Kane and Lauren are both in serious relationships. Five men. No women.

"We're so lucky. Look at us, look at us!" he said about his bandmates, all dressed in trendy suits. "It makes you feel good, it's special".
