Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton Win Big at 2018 ACM Awards
The winners in the 2018 ACM Awards have been announced, and Miranda Lambert and Chris Stapleton emerged as the night's biggest winners on Sunday night (April 15) in Las Vegas.
Lambert took home three awards on Sunday; she won Song of the Year for "Tin Man," setting a new record for most wins in ACMs history. She won twice; once as an artist and once as a co-writer, pushing her total wins to 31. Lambert went on to win Female Vocalist of the Year, giving her 32 lifetime wins.
Stapleton had another amazing night, perhaps even more stunning than his CMA sweep after Traveller was released. He won Album of the Year, but that news was overshadowed by the surprise news that Stapleton and his wife, Morgane, had welcomed twins on Sunday, which was also Stapleton's birthday. He went on to clinch Male Vocalist of the Year, though of course, he was not on hand to give a speech.
jason Aldean took home the night's biggest award, while Sam Hunt nailed down a big win, but was not on hand to accept his statue. Brothers Osborne won two ACM Awards in 2018, while Old Dominion took home a surprise win to inject new blood into a category that has been predictable in recent years.
Read on for a complete list of 2018 ACM Awards winners.
