Kacey Musgraves arrives for the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards
CNN  — 

The 54th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards were presented Sunday in Las Vegas.

Country superstar Reba McEntire hosted for a record-breaking 16th time and she had jokes.

The singer/sitcom star talked about the fact it recently snowed in Las Vegas.

“It was so cold it froze us women out of entertainer of the year,” she quipped.

McEntire also joked about some of the more unique duets out there, teasing that she and Cardi B would be doing a song titled, “There’s No ‘U’ in Oklahoma and That’s Okuurrrtt with Me,” using the rapper’s now-famous catch phrase.

Florida Georgia Line opened the show with Jason Aldean, performing their song “Can’t Hide Red.”

Aldean was presented the ACM Dick Clark artist of the decade award.

“This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz made her live performance singing debut on the show with a song from her new film, “Breakthrough.”

The actress perfomed the movie’s anthem, “I’m Standing With You,” joined by singers Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Mickey Guyton and Maddie & Tae.

Other performers throughout the night included Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Blake Shelton, Maren Morris and Keith Urban.

Dan + Shay were among the early winners, with their hit “Tequila” scoring song of the year. They went on to also win single record of the year and duo of the year.
