On Sunday night, Reba McEntire hosted the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards and you better believe she did a monologue. While she didn’t take home Female Vocalist of the Year (McEntire was nominated against eventual winner Miranda Lambert), Reba set the stage for an evening of performances dedicated to the victims of October’s Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 people dead and 851 injured.

Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Maren Morris, and Thomas Rhett introduced the ceremony with a nod to the victims, many of whom were attendees of the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Aldean was performing at the time of the shooting. The 2018 ACM award nominees, and category winners, are listed below.
