The long­est-run­ning No. 1 song of all-time on the coun­try charts, Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road,” won sin­gle record of the year at the ACMs; Hunt didn’t at­tend the show.

Lit­tle Big Town sang El­ton John’s “Rocket Man” in cel­e­bra­tion of the icon’s new al­bum, “Restora­tion,” which fea­tures coun­try singers cov­er­ing his songs. Kane Brown and Lau­ren Alaina were im­pres­sive when they sang their duet, “What Ifs.” Kenny Ch­es­ney, Toby Keith, Kelsea Bal­lerini, Alan Jack­son, Lady An­te­bel­lum and Dierks Bent­ley also per­formed.

McEn­tire, who per­formed with Kelly Clark­son, hosted the three­hour show a year af­ter Bryan and Bent­ley did the job.

“It takes one woman to do the job of two men,” she said, earn­ing a rous­ing ap­plause.

Old Do­min­ion won vo­cal group of the year, best­ing Lit­tle Big Town and Lady An­te­bel­lum.

“This is heavy in a lot of ways,” lead singer Matthew Ram­sey said, hold­ing the tro­phy in his hand.

“We’re so lucky. Look at us, look at us!” he said about his band­mates, all dressed in trendy suits. “We look good. We feel good. We’re friends. And we’re hav­ing a ball.

“Thank you for let­ting us make mu­sic.”
