Old Dominion won Group of the Year and Song of the Year at the 55th ACM Awards.

Blake Shelton’s “God’s Country” was named Single of the Year at the 55th annual ACM Awards. Dan + Shay were named Duo of the Year, with Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney accepting their trophies from presenters Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black in front of an empty Grand Ole Opry House. Old Dominion won Song of the Year for “One Man Band,” along with Group of the Year, and appeared onstage all wearing masks.

Delayed from the original April date due to Covid-19, the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards came to Nashville for the first time in its history on Wednesday, with the awards handed out live at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House, and performances at the Ryman Auditorium, Bluebird Cafe, and Opry House. Keith Urban serves as first-time host.

Ahead of the broadcast, winners were named in a handful of categories. In mid-August, Urban surprised Tenille Townes and Riley Green via Zoom to inform them that they were the New Artist of the Year winners. On Monday, three more winners were announced. Those included Thomas Rhett’s “Remember You Young” for Video of the Year and Hillary Lindsey winning her first Songwriter of the Year award. In the Music Event of the Year, the prize went to Miranda Lambert’s one-off cover of Elvin Bishop’s “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” featuring tourmates Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Caylee Hammack, Tenille Townes, and Elle King.

Performers include Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Keith Urban with Pink, and Taylor Swift, marking her first performance on the ACMs in seven years.
