ACM Awards 2017: 7 Best Performances
The American Country Music Awards are one of the biggest nights in country music, when Nashville takes over Las Vegas for the night! All of the biggest names gather together to celebrate their close knit genre and honor those who’ve stood out the most. In addition to all those awesome red carpet moments and award handouts, viewers get to watch their favorite artists take the stage to perform their latest hits. Last night’s show saw a whopping 23 performances, but 7 of those stood out above all the rest. Here are the top 7 performances from the 52nd Annual 2017 ACM Awards!
7. Thomas Rhett & Maren Morris
Country music’s newest female vocalist, Maren Morris, might have got lost in the shuffle with her solo performance last night, but when she showed up in the middle of Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You” for a duet, she more than made up for it! Morris had a great night as she walked away with the New Female Vocalist of the Year Award and not that long ago won a Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance. She’s had an incredible year, as has Thomas Rhett who won Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year last night! These two absolutely beamed on stage and their back and forth vocals were one of the highlights of the night!
6. Lauren Daigle & Reba McEntire
Christian singer Lauren Daigle had the honor standing next to country legend Reba McEntire on stage last night as the two gave a powerful performance of “Back to God” from McEntire’s recent gospel album. The two ladies stood up there alone with nothing else but a back up band and their vocals and let the touching lyrics of the song do all the talking as it left the audience absolutely mesmerized. It was so moving even McEntire was moved to tears at the end!
