Florida Georgia Line Nab Surprise Early Wins in 2017 ACM Awards
Florida Georgia Line were surprised with two early wins in the 2017 ACM Awards during a special event in Las Vegas on Saturday night (April 1). The multiple nominees have already taken home Single Record and Vocal Event of the Year.
The duo hit the stage in Vegas for the ACM Party for a Cause: WME Bash at the Beach on Saturday night, and during their performance, representatives from the ACM surprised them with the awards in front of the crowd. FGL won Single Record of the Year for "H.O.L.Y.," the smash hit lead single from their career-changing current album, Dig Your Roots, and claimed the Vocal Event of the Year honors for their collaboration with Tim McGraw, "May We All."
Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley turned to social media after the surprise presentation to share their excitement with their fans.
"Completely surprised tonight when we were stopped midshow and given two ACM awards for Vocal Event and Single of the Year. Amazing feeling, and even better to celebrate it with all of you in Vegas. Love y’all and thank you," they posted to Instagram early Sunday morning.
The superstar duo will hit the stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas during the live ACM Awards broadcast on Sunday night (April 2) to perform their current single, "God, Your Mama, and Me," with the Backstreet Boys, which marks BSB's ACM Awards debut. The single is the third from Dig Your Roots, and the Boys will also join FGL, Nelly and Chris Lane for select stadium dates on the upcoming Smooth Tour this summer.
The 2017 ACM Awards will air live from Vegas on CBS at 8PM ET.
