Reba McEntire: ACMs will pay tribute to Las Vegas shooting victims


Carrie Underwood is done with hiding.

Among the nominees with Oklahoma ties, Garth Brooks, who was born in Tulsa and grew up in Yukon, is nominated for the top award, Entertainer of the Year.

Miranda Lambert is set to perform, and host Reba McEntire revealed that the ACM Awards will pay tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting previous year. After a more than a decade spent with Sony Music Nashville, Underwood switched to Universal Music Group previous year.

Who could forget Brothers Osborne's fantastic tribute to country legend Don Williams at the Country Music Association Awards. It is the first large gathering of country music stars and fans in Las Vegas since that attack. The program was televised starting in 1972 and later partnered with Dick Clark Productions in 1979, which also saw its subsequent move to NBC and later to CBS starting in 1998.

It seems like McEntire would be in favor to win this category because she laid the groundwork for country music.

They are country music's power couple and have incorporated newer artists on their album, "The Rest of Our Lives" such as Meghan Trainor and Ed Sheeran.

The ACMS will be the first major country music event to take place in Las Vegas since the shootings.
