… The show opened with a “bang” as CARRIE UNDERWOOD, MIRANDA LAMBERT and BRAD PAISLEY joined John Fogerty for Creedence Clearwater’s “Travelin’ Band”.

… Was KENNY CHESNEY lip-synching on “Ain’t Back Yet”? Looked like it.

… Fans got to vote for BROOKS & DUNN’s last ACM performance, which turned out to be “My Maria”. Sadly Ronnie Dunn’s microphone malfunctioned for the first part of the song.

… Of course B&D won Vocal Duo of the Year.

… Surprise Win: MIRANDA LAMBERT won Album of the Year for “Revolution”, beating out BRAD PAISLEY and ZAC BROWN BAND.

… Newcomer LAURA BELL BUNDY sang and danced “Giddy On Up” … a memorable performance.

… BRAD PAISLEY landed in a pool of water after singing his new song “Water”. Then, all wet, he accepted the Male Vocalist of the Year award.

… CARRIE UNDERWOOD gets Entertainer of the Year… the award fan voted through text, voting. She won the award last year, too.

… Notably absent from performing and winning: SUGARLAND.
