Definitely the biggest night in country music, the 50th American Country Music Awards, took place Sunday night at the AT&T stadium in Texas as the biggest artist in country music from the past, present, and future celebrated together. This year, the ACMAs were hosted by the ever so talented, and may I add gorgeous, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton. The show opened up with Eric Church and Keith Urban.

Quarter back Tony Romo was also in attendance as he announced the performance of Dierks Bentley. However, before he did, Shelton asked if he would throw a pass to Bryan. When he tossed it to Luke, Shelton joked around saying “hold on let me make sure this is a real one and not a deflated ball,” Romo responded with “we are the cowboys we have real balls.”
