Old Dominion and Luke Combs were big winners Wednesday night at the 2020 ACM Awards.

Combs was named Male Artist of the Year and won Best Album for What You See Is What You Get and Old Dominion was celebrated as Group of the Year and won Song of the Year for "One Man Band.”

Accepting the latter, Old Dominion frontman Matthew Ramsey took the opportunity to pay tribute to family members and a friend the band has lost. "I can feel them all, they're so proud," he said, "and this is such an honour to receive this in their presence."

Thomas Rhett’s "Remember You Young” won Video of the Year and the singer shared the Entertainer of the Year award with Carrie Underwood, who lost Female Artist of the Year to Maren Morris.

“I’m beaming," Rhett said. "My heart is racing. What an amazing honour ... I will never forget this moment.”

Canada’s Tenille Townes – who was previously named New Female Artist – won the ACM Award for Music Event of the Year for being featured in a performance of “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” by Miranda Lambert along with Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack and Elle King.

Keith Urban hosted the ACM Awards, without a live audience, at the Grand Old Opry House and performers included Combs, Underwood, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church and Tim McGraw. Trisha Yearwood performed the In Memoriam tribute and Taylor Swift returned to the ACM Awards for the first time in seven years to perform her folklore track “Betty.”

Mickey Gunton made history as the first Black woman to perform on the show. "Brava Mickey! It makes me so happy to see you shine," tweeted Jennifer Nettles, "and share your talent and love for country music, with the world!"
