The 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards opened on Sunday with hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan addressing some of the political issues of the past year.

The duo pointed out how much has changed since they emceed the 2013 show, with Shelton telling the crowd, “A year ago, same sex marriage just meant once you got married, you had the same sex over and over and over again.”

The pair went on to note that medical marijuana dispensaries are popping up everywhere, but previously you had to go to “Eric Church’s dressing room.”

Shelton and Bryan also trumpeted that everyone at tonight’s Las Vegas show would be singing live.

“And if you don’t like live music, you have to go down the block and see Britney Spears,” quipped “The Voice” coach.

There were also pot shots at Justin Bieber’s run-ins with the law, Miley Cyrus’ fingering ways, and much more.
