Dan And Shay CMA Awards 2019
Dan And Shay CMA Awards 2019:Dan + Shay picked up trophies in three categories Sunday on the Academy of Country Music Awards telecast, while Kacey Musgraves prevailed in two in a ceremony broadcast on CBS from Las Vegas.
The entertainer of the year award, meanwhile, in something of an upset, went to Keith Urban, who had never before gotten that honor from the ACMs, although he has won a same-named trophy from the rival CMA Awards in the past.
Dan + Shay’s notoriety outside of country music grew when their performance of “Tequila” became the most Shazam-ed song at the Grammy Awards in February. That song won for single of the year and song of the year Sunday night, while the twosome also picked up the trophy for duo of the year. They came into the ACMs with the most nominations as well — after never before winning an ACM, or a CMA for that matter.

After Sunday night (4/7), Dan and Shay 2019 ACM Awards just go together…. The country music duo will never forget this awards show! Reba McEntire herself re-named the ceremony “Dan + Shay’s Excellent Adventure,” with the duo taking home three awards and Dan Smyers earning five. The Multi-Platinum, chart-topping global hit “Tequila” earned the pair Song and Single of the Year awards early in the evening. The stars also took home the title of Duo of the Year after performing their larger-than-life duet “Keeping Score” with Kelly Clarkson.
Headliners include the genre-crossing duo Florida Georgia Line, GRAMMY-winning guitar slinger Keith Urban and neo-traditional icon Garth Brooks with wife Trisha Yearwood. For the performers, the lineup’s variety is not only welcome but refreshing.
“It’s a cool time to be creating and it’s a cool time to be country,” says Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line, who are featured on Bebe Rexha’s recent pop mega-hit “Meant To Be.” “The whole weekend at Stagecoach is about bringing the country community together — all the different avenues and subgenres. People come to country music with so many different influences, and then end up with their own style, and that’s to be celebrated.”
Breakout star Kelsea Ballerini joined her idol Shania Twain to perform a song at last year’s Stagecoach, and she is returning Friday night to play her own set on the main stage. According to the Tennessee native, the festival reflects the current sounds coming out of country airwaves.
