Following Grammy win, Dan + Shay victorious at ACM Awards

Lambert responded, "If there's a train moving fast down the tracks, I hope you caught it", while a massive backdrop of downtown Dallas glowed behind them.

Bentley, who was nominated for four separate awards, wasn't totally out of the woods on the big day.

Urban, 51, took home the night's most coveted prize, entertainer of the year, after having been nominated nine previous times since 2005 - a year before he and Kidman married.

The honour went to Keith Urban, whose wife actress Nicole Kidman appeared genuinely shocked at his win.

Host Reba McEntire, marking a record 16th time in the job, wasted no time in addressing one of the evening's touchy subjects - the lack of women nominees in some top categories.

Take down enemies and challenges as a team, but reap rewards that are yours alone - no one misses out on loot. This is yet another example of a big developer putting their games in the hands of Epic Games.

Dan + Shay scored three straight early wins, for song of the year and single of the year for Tequila, also winning duo of the year. "I've already cried at it, I'll try not to cry", she said ahead of her husband's performance.

She said they could sing her song "There's No U and Oklahoma", then said: "And that's okurrr with me", earning laughs from the audience. Her competition includes Stapleton's "From A Room: Volume 2", Eric Church's "Desperate Man", Dierks Bentley's "The Mountain" and Dan + Shay's self-titled release. No women were nominated for songwriter of the year. "This Is Us" actress Chrissy Metz, who stars in the new movie "Breakthrough", performed a song alongside Lauren Alaina, Mickey Guyton, Maddie & Tae and Underwood.

Luckily the performers at ACM Awards, airing live on CBS, include a good number of female musicians.

Kidman wasn't the only style standout at the awards, held at the MGM Casino in Las Vegas, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Kasey Musgraves also dressed to impress on the red carpet.
