Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett tied for Entertainer of the Year during the 55th annual ACM Awards show - something that hasn’t happened before.
After being postponed due to government coronavirus restrictions, the Academy of Country Music Awards aired on Wednesday night, hosted by Keith Urban.
The show was broadcast live from three iconic Nashville locations: Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Cafe.
Keith was left surprised after opening the Entertainer of the Year envelope to announce the night's biggest winner.
Announcing Thomas as the first winner, he went up to the stage and gasped: “Oh my goodness gracious... Keith, what is happening right now?”
