Mobile Roadie artists win big at 48th ACM Awards

What a night! Hailed as “Country Music’s Party of the Year,” the 48th Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards kicked off last night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. And with more than 15 million viewers tuning in, this year’s show was the most-watched in 15 years.

Hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, the three-hour show did not disappoint with lively performances from Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, & Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley & John Mayer, and Kelly Clarkson.

But the real stars of the show were the winners.

The biggest award of the night, Entertainer of the Year, went to Luke Bryan who triumphed over country heavyweights Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, and Taylor Swift.

Mobile Roadie clients who won awards last night include: Jason Aldean (Male Vocalist of the Year & Vocal Event of the Year), Miranda Lambert (Female Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, and Single Record of the Year), Little Big Town (Vocal Group of the Year & Video of the Year), and Ryman Auditorium who won an award for Venue of the Year.

Congratulations to all the winners & the nominees!
