Reba McEntire: Female country stars being overlooked at ACMs

Reba McEntire: Female country stars being overlooked at ACMs

At the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, the focus isn't only on honoring the best in country music.

Kacey Musgraves made history when she won the 2019 Grammy for album of the year and swept the country music categories, but there's one award she won't win: entertainer of the year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. "Baby girl, I love you so much", Urban said as Kidman, whom he'd kissed numerous times before collecting his prize, looked on lovingly. "To the fans out there, you are incredible".

Ashley McBryde, who won new female artist of the year, also was memorable: almost in tears, she strummed her guitar and beautifully sang "Girl Goin' Nowhere".

The rowdy song was a crowd favorite on Sunday night (April 7) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. "You have no idea what you mean to me". Up for Male Artist of the Year are Dierks Bentley, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Stapleton and Urban. She was joined onstage by Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Mickey Guyton and Maddie & Tae - the performers all wore blue dresses and sang in unison. Led once again by recurring host Reba McEntire, the event will feature performances by more than two dozen music stars, including Keith Urban, Khalid, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, and others.

When asked about Lambert surprising fans at her Nashville show in March and the possibility of a song together, Morris responded, "Well, we're going on tour together later this fall, so maybe we'll write a song together when we're out".

Instead of singing "I live in Oklahoma" like she does in the original version, Lambert belted out the words "I got the hell out of Oklahoma".
