The 59th annual Academy of Country Music Awards are here.

Luke Combs was the most nominated artist at the 2024 ACM Awards, but he did not attend the award show. Tied for second were Morgan Wallen and Megan Moroney with six nominations each.

Reba McEntire returned for the 17th time as the host of the award show that was held at the Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas on Thursday night. 

During the award show’s pre-show, which was aired on Prime Video, Jelly Roll mentioned it would be “a dream” if he won entertainer of the year – which he was nominated for. Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Cody Johnson, Chris Stapleton, Morgan Wallen and Lainey Wilson were also nominated for the night’s most coveted award.

Ultimately, Lainey Wilson took home the entertainer of the year award.
