When it comes to any award show, the thing I look forward to most are the live performances! I feel like live music offers such an amazing opportunity to hear the music you love in a more raw, real way. And boy, did I have a lot of live music to enjoy tonight during the ACM's!

I definitely had a couple favorite moments from the show tonight! First, was the performance Little Big Town put on of their song "You Look Good". They had a full band line-up baking them up, horns and all! Plus, they weaved in some of Bill Withers "Use Me", which is a spectacular song as well, I loved the mashup!

But hands down, the part of the ACM's that stole my heart was seeing my favorite childhood group (and let's be honest, still one of my favorite bands) Backstreet Boys, take the stage with Florida Georgia Line and perform the new song "God, Your Mama, and Me". And then... BSB and FGL freaking BLEW ME AWAY when they killed their performance of my old Backstreet Boys favorite, "Everybody". I loved it, and my fiance can confirm, I sat there at the edge of the couch slack jawed and absorbed the whole thing, lol.
