Keith Urban was named Entertainer of the Year at the 2019 ACM Awards. This marked the first time the singer-guitarist, who performed a new song titled “My Burden” during the telecast, won the Academy of Country Music’s top prize.

Elsewhere, Kacey Musgraves was named Female Artist of the Year, while her Grammy-winning LP Golden Hour won Album of the Year. “Thank you to everyone out there still supporting and buying albums,” she said during her speech. Thomas Rhett, who performed his new single “Look What God Gave Her,” was named Male Artist of the Year.

Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” continued its award-winning run at the 54th ACMs. The Grammy-winning Number One was named Song of the Year and Single of the Year. “We couldn’t have a Single of the Year without the studio musicians in Nashville,” said Dan Smyers, taking time to acknowledge Music City’s deep roster of session players. Smyers and Shay Mooney also won their first-ever Duo of the Year honor.

Old Dominion, Chris Janson and Shane McAnally were among the off-camera winners earlier in the day. Old Dominion, currently on their Make It Sweet Tour, won Group of the Year, while Janson, who released his new single “Good Vibes” in February, received Music Video of the Year honors for “Drunk Girl.” McAnally was named Songwriter of the Year.

Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne’s collaboration “Burning Man” won Music Event of the Year. Written by Luke Dick and Bobby Pinson, the Number One single appears on Bentley’s latest album The Mountain.

The Music Event of the Year honorees join other previously announced winners in the new artist categories: Luke Combs was named New Male Vocalist, Ashley McBryde New Female Vocalist and Lanco New Group/Duo on March 25th.
