ACM Awards Winners 2016


The Academy of Country Music will honor the industry’s best and brightest with the 2016 ACM Awards on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has a full list of the winners!

As Gossip Cop reported, nominations for the 51st ACMs were unveiled in February. Eric Church leads the pack of nominees with six nods. That includes the top honor, Entertainment of the Year.

He is competing against reigning champion (and ACM Awards host) Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks and Miranda Lambert. Church and Aldean are also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, along with Chris Stapleton, Brett Eldredge, and ACMs co-host Dierks Bentley. Lambert is up for Female Vocalist of the Year with fellow contenders Jana Kramer, Kelsea Ballerini, Kacey Musgraves and Carrie Underwood.

Ballerini and Stapleton are actually already winners, as they were named the New Female and Male Artists of the Year late last month. The rest of the awards will be handed out during a three-hour ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Check out the full list of categories below, and stay tuned for live updates with the winners tonight!
