Stapleton, Aldean among big ACM winners

Chris Stapleton was the name of the night at the Academy of Country Music Awards as he picked up six wins.

Among them included several strong categories including a first-time win for Male Vocalist of the Year as well as both Song and Album of the Year. 

Jason Aldean found a win for Entertainer of the Year, one of the top awards of the night, after being previously nominated four times. 

Miranda Lambert took home her record-setting seventh consecutive win for Female Vocalist of the Year. She also won an early award for Smokin’ And Drinkin’ with Little Big Town.

Several newer artists picked up first-time ACM wins. Thomas Rhett won Single of the Year for “Die A Happy Man” and had a goal-worthy moment with his wife Lauren as he walked up to accept the award. 

This is a developing story. More details and reaction from artists will be added throughout the night.
