ET's Nancy O'Dell caught up with Morris on the red carpet of the 2019 ACM Awards, where she talked up about her whirlwind month since releasing her new album, GIRL, and the possibility of writing new music with the country music legend. "This is all incredible". Urban and Bryan also lead the list of five nominees for Artist of the Year, along with Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean, and Kenny Chesney.

While this wasn't the first time Lambert, 35, has sung the updated rendition of the hit song, she has never done so with Shelton present - seemingly shading the "Voice" judge in front of his longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani in the process. Host Reba McEntire introduced Lambert, the most rewarded artist in ACM awards history, as "32-time ACM award victor, Miranda Lambert".

Bentley, who was nominated for four separate awards, wasn't totally out of the woods on the big day. Showing support and unity for each other celebrities such as Lauren Alaina and Mickey Guyton as well as Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye of Maddie & Tae donned royal-blue ensembles. "A lot of the girls are, so I think they're being overlooked right now". Metz stars in "Breakthrough", a film about a mother who will stop at nothing to have her son well again after he has a tragic accident.

The star-laden three-hour show marked an upbeat return to celebrating country music after last year's awards assumed a sombre note following the October 2017 mass shooting, also in Las Vegas, that killed 58 people at a country music festival. No women were nominated for songwriter of the year.

But Musgraves took home both the album of the year and female artist of the year awards.

A third tweeted, "Wished they would have shown Blake Shelton's face during Miranda Lambert's performance".
