Dan + Shay, Ur­ban, Mus­graves claim ACM Awards

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

Grammy-win­ning duo Dan + Shay so­lid­i­fied them­selves as the hottest group in coun­try mu­sic with mul­ti­ple wins at the Academy of Coun­try Mu­sic Awards, where Keith Ur­ban was named en­ter­tainer of the year and Kacey Mus­graves won three hon­ors.

Ur­ban won the top prize Sun­day with his ninth nom­i­na­tion for the award, best­ing Chris Sta­ple­ton, Luke Bryan, Kenny Ch­es­ney and Ja­son Aldean, who held the title the last three years.

Mus­graves won twice when “Golden Hour” picked up top al­bum – as an artist and co-pro­ducer. She was also named fe­male artist of the year.

Other cat­e­gories didn’t fea­ture many fe­male nom­i­nees: Bebe Rexha was the only woman com­pet­ing for song of the year with “Meant to Be,” while Mad­die & Tae was the sole fe­male act up for duo of the year.

But both hon­ors, along with sin­gle of the year, went to Dan + Shay.
