Breakout phenom Chris Stapleton dominated the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday, racking up half a dozen wins on one of the genre's biggest evenings.

“When you get this kind of thing going, it's luck," the soft-spoken Stapleton said. "I don't think anyone deserves it. I'm just grateful for the moment."

In a stunner, the night's most coveted award — entertainer of the year — went to Jason Aldean, an overdue surprise for the singer who added stadium concerts to his tours years ago — and toured with Luke Bryan as an opening act. When Bryan leapfrogged over his friend to win his first ACM Entertainer of the Year Award in 2012, Aldean thought his chance to win country music’s top honor had passed.

"I was starting to think this one just wasn't in the cards for me," Aldean said. "I tell you what, I may be rough around the edges a little bit, but I love this business. I love the people in it, and I love the fans that support it. Thank you very, very much. I appreciate it. This is one of the best nights in my professional career."

Multiple artists chose to debut new music on the show: Aldean beamed dozens of red and blue lights through the star-filled crowd during his new song “Lights Come On.” Carrie Underwood introduced her new song “Church Bells,” a dark song that continues Underwood’s women empowerment theme. Urban set the stage on fire with a banjo-driven version of his new song “Wasted Time.” On the red carpet before the show, Urban told The Tennessean the song was written in January.

“It’s a blast to play because it’s so simple,” Urban said.
