2018 ACM Awards Winners

The 2018 ACM Awards were held on Sunday, April 15th in Las Vegas. Overall, I thought it was a great show. The performances were pretty solid, the awards went to the right artists (except Jon Pardi not winning Album of the Year….this was Jon Pardi’s year!), and Reba shined as host. Below you’ll find the complete list of winners from the awards show. Enjoy!
