ACM Awards 2016: 15 Best and Worst Moments

Best Power Trio: Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Billy Gibbons

Miranda Lambert tackled ZZ Top's "Tush" more than two dozen times during her Certified Platinum Tour, but never with the added firepower of Keith Urban and Billy Gibbons, whose dueling guitars received nearly as much ACM airtime as Lambert's voice. Lined up across the lip of the stage, the three presented themselves as a supergroup of equals. The only other performance to draw such a close connection between singers and their bands was Chris Stapleton's "Fire Away," making "Tush" less of a showcase for the Entertainer of the Year nominee and more of a gloriously tag-teamed tribute to getting laid.
