2017 ACM Awards: 10 Best, Worst and WTF Moments

From co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley’s opening monologue to a bro country/boy band mash-up

The 52nd ACM Awards hit many of the right notes, as the Las Vegas blowout assembled country’s heavy hitters for a mostly entertaining show. Along with honoring today’s country music, the production also paid tribute to early rock & roll and Nineties boy-band pop, two moves that could have felt shoe-horned in if not for the game collaborators – Joe Walsh and Backstreet Boys, respectively – who graced the stage. Still, the night wasn’t without missteps. Here’s the best, worst and oh-my-god moments of the 2017 ACMs.
