Country music icon Reba McEntire returned to host the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards for the 16th time Sunday night. Before Sunday’s broadcast, McEntire shared some details about the hosting gig, which she promised would be politics-free.

“We’ve got to keep it light. We’ve got to keep it fun. No politics. This is fun. This is entertainment. We are in the entertainment business, and that’s what we’re going to be doing,” McEntire said.

Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban led in the top categories, but Urban ultimately took home entertainer of the year. The show also featured memorable performances, including one by “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz who gave her first live TV singing debut.

Here is the list of ACM Awards winners below:
