Aldean takes prize at Academy of Country Music Awards, honors Vegas victims

2018 ACM Awards Complete Winners List Jason Aldean & Wife Brittany Kerr Hit the Red Carpet at ACM Awards 2018!

On Sunday night, country music stars gathered for the annual ACM Awards, and viewers praised host Reba McEntire for putting politics on the back burner. Earlier this month, the singer shared that she was back in the studio recording new music.

"It's been a rough year and I just want to say thank you to everybody that reached out to us and showed us love and support over the last six months", Aldean stated.

Carrie Underwood made her first television appearance since injuring her face and wrist past year, owning the stage with her powerhouse vocals.

Throughout the night there were more than 20 performances from acts like Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, McEntire herself and so many more.

Miranda Lambert made ACM Awards history Sunday night as she bagged her 30th, 31st, and 32nd gongs at the Las Vegas ceremony.

She provided her fans an update last week, saying her wrist is almost back to normal and her face "has been healing pretty nicely" after receiving nearly 50 stitches from the fall.

Stapleton didn't attend the show, but host Reba McEntire announced the birth of the boys when his Grammy-winning album, "From A Room: Volume 1", was named top ACM album.

And Aldean poignantly wrapped the tribute, adding: "With respect and love to our friends, family and fans, we celebrate the music tonight".

Iraqi Air Force hits Daesh terror targets in Syria
On Thursday, Iraq's Air Force also released a video of an F-16 fighter jet taxiing on what appears to be a military air base. Iraq has attacked sites around the border town of Abu Kamal, but they've never said the strike was coordinated with Syria.

Shortly after, Carrie returned to the stage with Keith Urban to accept the award for the vocal event of the year for their duet "The Fighter".

But just days later, the singer took a tumble outside her home and broke her wrist.

But none of her outfits dazzled quite like her donning again the jaw-dropping red dress she first wore 25 years ago to perform her 1993 hit "Does He Love You" with Linda Davis on the ACM Awards.

Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett took the stage to kick off the ACMs in Las Vegas, the same city where - in October - a shooter opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, killing 58 and injuring an estimated 851 people during Aldean's set on the festival's main stage. Five men. No women.

Other performers include Dierks Bentley, Ballerini, Lauren Alaina, Kane Brown, Dan + Shay, Chris Janson, Midland, Jon Pardi, Darius Rucker, Brett Young and Chris Young.

Old Dominion won vocal group of the year, besting Little Big Town and Lady Antebellum.

"Sometimes I think things happen in order to make us slow down".

"Thank you for letting us make music".
