The 2017 ACM Honors, which was held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last month, airs Friday night. Gossip Cop has a live stream of the country music ceremony available online. Watch it below!

The Academy of Country Music’s ACM Honors, now in its 11th year, celebrates ACM Awards winners and other special honorees whose categories didn’t make the show’s broadcast back in April. Among this year’s notable recipients was Kelsea Ballerini, who accepted the Gene Weed Milestone Award thanks in part to earning three consecutive No. 1 singles from her debut album. Eric Church received the Merle Haggard Spirit Award, which recognizes “genuine performances and great storytelling.” And Dolly Parton received the Gary Haber Lifting Lives Award in recognition of her humanitarian work.

Meanwhile, George Strait collected the Cliffie Stone Icon Award, given to country artists who “advanced the popularity of the genre” throughout their career. Reba McEntire and radio host Bob Kingsley received the Mae Boren Axton Service Award for their “years of dedication to the Academy of Country Music.” And Toby Keith, Willie Nelson and late poet Shel Silverstein received the Poet’s Award for their contributions to country music songwriting. In addition, Lori McKenna received the award for ACM Songwriter of the Year. And the ABC TV series “Nashville,” which revolves around the Nashville music scene, won the Tex Ritter Film Award, which goes to a movie or TV series that “prominently features country music.”

There were also a number of musical performances throughout the awards ceremony. Among the artists who took the stage included Toby Keith, Kelsea Ballerini, George Strait, Vince Gill, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Thomas Rhett, Hillary Scott and Chris Stapleton. Additional country stars on hand as presenters included Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Jimmy Webb, Ross Copperman and Bobby Bones. The taping of the 2017 ACM Honors airs at 9 p.m. ET.
