On Sunday, all your favorite country artists — and a few of pop stars, too — gathered together at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas in celebration of the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards. The event, which first began in 1966, was hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, who kicked off the star-studded night with Bryan’s twangy tune, “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day.”

But that wasn’t the only southern song that had the audience and viewers at home stomping their cowboy boots. Check out some of the best performances from the 51st annual award show below:

1. Blake Shelton —​ “Came Here to Forget”

After hilariously crashing Bryan and Bentley’s opening number, the country crooner took the stage to perform his emotional song “Came Here to Forget” — a tune speculated to have been written about Shelton’s relationship with his girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

2. Kelsea Ballerini and Nick Jonas —​ “Peter Pan”

The Jonas brother hit the stage during the ACM awards — with his guitar in tow — to join Ballerini for a soulful duet.

3. Miranda Lambert —​ “Tush”

The artist, who earned female vocalist of the year, got fans up on their feet when she performed a cover of ZZ Top’s hip-swinging single “Tush,” alongside Keith Urban and Billy Gibbons.

4. Florida Georgia Line —​ “Confession”

The yodeling twosome serenaded viewers with a tune from their album “Anything Goes.”

5. Dolly Parton and Katy Perry —​ “Jolene”

The glitter-covered duo earned praise from fans as they rocked the house with three country classics —​ “Coat of Many Colors,” “Jolene” and “9 to 5.”

6. Carrie Underwood —​ “Church Bells”

Underwood gave audiences a spiritual experience during her television debut of her new single, “Church Bells.”
