10 Of The Craziest Moments In ACM Awards History

Alan Jackson, Matthew McConaughey ACM awards country music

With the ACM Awards coming up on Monday, we’ve been taking a look back at some of the most memorable moments in the show’s history.

From Travis Tritt and actor Joe Pesci performing together in 1992, to Ashton Kutcher looking like a clown in 2012 and Alan Jackson’s hilarious middle finger to the show’s producers back in 1994, there have been some good times on the show throughout the years.

And while Miranda Lambert throwing shade at Blake Shelton’s native Oklahoma back in 2019 was hilarious and I absolutely loved it, she had a much more serious moment at the 2010 ACM Awards show when she performed her mega hit, “The House That Built Me”.

That being said, why not put them all in one place.

So without further ado… here’s 10 of the wildest ACM Awards moments:
