Lainey Wilson and Chris Stapleton Win Top ACM Awards, Post Malone Shines  

Top accolades went to Lainey Wilson and Chris Stapleton at the 59th Annual ACM Awards, which were hosted by Reba McEntire in Frisco, Texas.   

Stapleton received Album of the Year, Male Entertainer of the Year, and Artist-Songwriter of the Year;  

Wilson won Entertainer of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, and Event of the Year—the latter for her duet with Jelly Roll, "Save Me."  

Both performers gave outstanding performances during the event.  

Other notable winners were Old Dominion (best group), Jessie Jo Dillon (best songwriter), and Megan Maroney and Nate Smith (best new artists, respectively).  

Luke Combs won Single of the Year for his rendition of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," and Jordan Davis won Song of the Year for "Next Thing You Know."  

Avril Lavigne showcased her vocal prowess while singing with Nate Smith (wearing a System of a Down hoodie, no less), Noah Kahan performed with Kelsea Ballerini,   

and Gwen Stefani channeled a literal purple iris with her dress when she sang "Purple Irises" with husband Blake Shelton.  

What was striking about this year's awards was the number of non-traditional country artists who performed.
