There was tons of action going on in front of the camera at the 2017 ACM Awards, but fans who watched at home missed some fun behind-the-scenes moments that happened off-camera.

From Lady Antebellum's electrifying performance of "You Look Good" to the show-stopping collaboration between Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys on "Everybody" and every moment in between, there was no shortage of musical highlights at the 2017 ACMs. But awards shows offer ample opportunity for the country music community to spend time with one another in between performances and acceptance speeches, and this year's show was no exception.

Photographers who covered the event caught some of the biggest stars in country music in some candid moments, just hanging and chatting with friends, reacting with astonishment to big wins and in one case, unexpectedly freaking out over one of the performances.
