On the ACM Awards last night...& Keith Urban’s wife scores a big role

On the ACM Awards last night Entertainer of the Year was Luke Bryan. 

Female artist Maren Morris also won Song of the Year for ‘The Bones.’ 

The Male artist was Thomas Rhett. Thomas Rhett confessed Dierks Bentley was cracking him up as he took the stage to accept his Male Artist trophy, though he declined to say exactly what Dierks had said. 

Duo was Dan + Shay and when they performed there was an audio/video sync issue. 

Group winner went to Old Dominion. 

Album of the Year was Chris Stapleton’s ‘Starting Over.’ Miranda Lambert had to fill in at the last minute for Chris’s wife who was supposed to sing with him but had a prior doula commitment. 

Single went to the very surprised Carly Pearce & Lee Brice for ‘I Hope You're Happy Now.’

Blake Shelton said he’d lose weight for his wedding and last night I could tell he really has. I also hear due to how much trouble Blake’s gotten in with his tweets, his team now handles most of his Twitter activity. Blake says Reba's even been hard on him about it.

Finally - Keith Urban’s wife Nicole Kidman will star as Lucille Ball in the biopic, ‘Being The Ricardo’s.’ It follows Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz during production on their 50s TV show, I Love Lucy.
