Best: Paisley's Pool Party

Las Vegas got about as much screen time as any of the nominees, the show traveling down the strip for performances outside the MGM Grand Garden Arena. For the live debut of his new single, "River Bank," Brad Paisley played poolside to a sea of bikini-clad fans. The teetotalling family man managed to intoxicate with slick guitar skills and a clever storyline of "laughing all the way to the river bank." The simultaneous broadcast at the ACM Fan Jam also brought the party outside, with high-energy performances by Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line, among others.
