2020 ACM Awards winners list: Full list of Academy of Country Music winners in all categories

The 55th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards were held on Wednesday night, September 16, after being delayed by several months due to the coronavirus pandemic. So who came out on top when prizes were handed out? Scroll down for our complete list of winners in all categories, from Entertainer of the Year to Music Event of the Year.

Old Dominion, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett and Dan and Shay topped the nominations, which were announced way back on February 27. The awards show was originally scheduled to air on April 5 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. But then COVID-19 spread across the globe, forcing TV productions, movie shoots and myriad entertainment events to shut down in order to limit the spread of the disease.

So the ACM Awards were delayed, and though the health crisis is still ongoing, other events like the MTV Video Music Awards and the Emmys have been able to move forward with safeguards in place to try to protect the health and safety of the participants. To that end, the ACMs moved their event from Vegas to three locations in Nashville, Tennessee: the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Cafe.

Now that the show was finally able to go on, who took home the most hardware, and which artist took home the top prize of Entertainer of the Year: Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Carrie Underwood or Rhett. Find out below, and join the music discussion with your fellow fans here in our forums.
