Country duo Dan + Shay has continued his career at the Academy of Country Music Awards 2019 on Sunday night as they won three awards – most of every act – and it became a nightmare.
"I'll give this Dan + Shay so I can go home with four," said Thomas Rhett when he picked up a trophy for a male artist of the year. Speaker Reba McEntire said the show should be renamed "Dan + Shay's Excellent Adventure".
Even Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, apparently overwhelmed, felt self-defeating until the very third speech. "I think someone mixed the cards," smayer banned when they accepted the vocal duo award. They also went with the song and single year for the "Tequila" ballad, who brought them their first Grammy for duo / group performance.
Kacey Musgraves has continued its winning line with "Golden Hour", which boosted her at four Grammy in February, including the album of the year. This time he won the ACM album and artist of the year; and although the curiosity did not get a seat at three hours of television broadcasting, she took advantage of her time on the stage with an empowering message.
– This award is awarded to every woman or girl – or anyone, really – it may have been said that her perspective or style is too different from work, "Musgraves said, perhaps in support of the fact that some folk music guards do not value her unique perspective. – Just stay. That will work. "
Meanwhile, Keith Urban won the category of the prestigious entertainer of the year and became emotional, thanks to his wife, Nicole Kidman (who, as usual, dealt with the audience) and their two daughters. The full list of winners is below; Here are some of the best and worst moments from the show.
* Timeline of Ashley McBryde's "Girl Goin 'Nowhere".
McBride, who barely experienced a decade of life in Nashville before publishing his critics critique last year, had one of those moments that artists dreamed of: she had to go to national television and sing a song about people she thought she would never succeed. The amazing acoustic ballad "Girl Goin 'Nowhere" inspired by a teacher who told her she would never be a country singer.
At the end of the show, McBride (who won the new female artist of the year) was so overwhelmed that he could barely sing. "Wow," she said, and the audience gave her a tremendous ovation.
Collaboration between Maren Morris and Osborne brothers.
Some ACM performances were seriously severe while others were emitting pure infectious energy – Morris and TJ and John Osborne are definitely the other. Three singers (who are close friends in real life) were delighted with their joyful new song "All My Favorite People", cut off Morris's new album, "The Girl". The show had some Nashville jokes, including the Santa's Pub, one of the favorite diving bars in Music City with an epic karaoke.
Many other duets.
It is commonplace that the duo for the prize in the country was rewarded or failed, but this year there were surprisingly a large number of solid pairs. Kane Brown and Khalid impressed the remixed version of "Saturday Nights," which Khalid released in January. Dierks Bentley and Brandi Carlile crashed a house with "Travelin & # 39; Light," which appears on Bentley's album. Eric Church and McBryde were perfectly fit the song "Snake" about the current poisonous political atmosphere.
And as an extra bonus – there were some nineties and early 2000s! George Strait and Miranda Lambert were hit with "Runo" in Strait, while Luke Combs apologized for the up-to-date performance of "Brand New Man" with Brooks & Dunn.
* Blake Shelton's unexpected dark voice.
Shelton has been on the radio for a while and everyone sounds alike. However, his new "God's Country" has an unexpected Gothic energy that one would not necessarily associate with the Coach Coach. Still, it seems to be working. His performance, with the ghastly dark clouds of lightning behind him, helped make the track to 2nd place on iTunes increase.
* Walking trail in the pool of Carrie Underwood.
Speaking of singers who are trying new things, you do not usually think of "party song" and "Carrie Underwood". "Love" or "revenge" or "murder". So give her the props to go completely in the opposite direction with the "Southbound", an optimistic, spring break-themed trail that started at the pool in Vegas (which was joined by her travel opener, Maddie and Tae and Runaway June) and continued into ACM with many auxiliary dancers who looked delighted to be there.
* Big big small town with "Daughters".
The Country Quartet is known for its ballads and harmony, and their new single has the ability to stop you on your tracks when you hear brutally honest lyrics about all the expectations of women: "Place yourself as a trophy on the shelf / san for all but not and for yourself. , "I have heard of God, the Son and the Father of God / I am still looking for God for the Daughters."
* Lack of female candidates and winners.
Although the topic that is often discussed in country music these days is never a good sign when ACM's own host speaks of the apparent lack of women shown on the show: "Did you know that snow fell in Las Vegas a few weeks ago? It was so cold that our women froze from the entertainer of the year, "Reba said dry at the top of the show, drawing ooohhhs from the crowd. All male categories were even more pronounced when only two women all night received prizes at the stage: Kacey Musgraves, who won two awards, and Nicolle Galyon, who wrote Danquay's "Tequila".
* Read Bryana "Knockin" Boots. "
Maybe because he followed the fiery Miranda Lambert, but Bryan, usually one of the most annoying performers, was a swing and miss with his new single; It did not seem to bring its usual energy. Something tells us that this song will be the first ever. , a sign he had in the audience (a little while Reba's monologue) is not lying:
* Optics "Artist of the Decade".
Even though ACMs were worried about how Lambert had the most ACM awards in the history of the show (32!), Aldean was the one who received special honor and talk on television broadcast because he was named a decade-old artist. However, Aldean is a big star – but it looked a little weird when they both performed the medley of their great hits, and then Aldean only got the honor.
