The ACM Award for Entertainer of the Year ended in a tie for the first time in the 55-year history of the awards show.
Both Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett were named Entertainer of the Year in a surprising twist that closed the night’s show.
The ACM Awards aired live from Nashville on Sept. 16 with first-time host Keith Urban. The show took place at three iconic Nashville institutions: the Grand Ole Opry House, The Bluebird Cafe and Ryman Auditorium.
