Host Reba McEntire, marking a record 16th time in the job, wasted no time in addressing one of the evening's touchy subjects - the lack of women nominees in some top categories.

The ACMAs will once again feature "ACM Flashbacks", honoring classic country music hits and the artists whose music continues to influence musicians and fans alike.
