The 52nd annual Academy of Country Music Awards are more than just the three-hour TV special. Seemingly Nashville’s entire country music community descends upon Las Vegas for a long weekend of concerts, parties and schmoozing. Rolling Stone Country and the Ram Report were on the scene throughout ACMs week, bringing our cameras to all of the in-demand events, from the ACM’s Party for a Cause to the awards’ red carpet.
In this special installment of the Ram Report, we take on Vegas with Lady Antebellum, Kip Moore, Old Dominion and more, and capture all the sights and sounds of the ACM’s signature event.
From co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley’s opening monologue to a bro country/boy band mash-up. Here are the best, worst and wtf moments from the 2017 ACM Awards.
