The 2014 ACMs were memorable for many reasons. George Strait, the newly crowned Entertainer of the Year, proved he is truly an unforgettable country music icon. Miranda Lambert once again snatched up the Female Vocalist of the Year honors, and Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan nailed their hilarious monologue. But, perhaps the most memorable event — at least in our minds? The results of the 2014 ACM Awards predictions.

Before every major awards show, ToC and readers face off and pick each of the major awards. Normally, choosing three of 10 awards will score a win. This time, ToC and readers picked incredibly similarly to one another — both sides nabbed seven correct awards, tying it up. That’s right — seven correct predictions!

Male Vocalist of the Year was a surprise, as Jason Aldean won, but ToC and readers predicted Bryan as the winner. Album of the Year also threw a curveball; even though both sides picked different winners (ToC predicted Blake Shelton, ‘Based on a True Story’ and readers picked Luke Bryan’s ‘Crash My Party), Kacey Musgraves sneaked in as the ultimate winner. Single Record of the Year also upset both readers and ToC predictions.

The final outcome for the past five awards shows? Team ToC has two wins to readers’ one win, and there are two ties. Until next time…
