No crowd? No problem! There were some simply stunning performances at the 2020 ACM Awards, including several that might have left you in tears.

Trisha Yearwood, Mickey Guyton and Eric Church are three that stirred our souls, but Carrie Underwood's medley of Grand Ole Opry hitmakers was the No. 1 ACM Awards performance for many. She was busy on this night, performing twice and earning her third Entertainer of the Year award at the ACMs, her first in a decade.

Newcomers like Gabby Barrett and Morgan Wallen also stood out among the two dozen or so performers on Wednesday night (Sept. 16). The 2020 ACM Awards also featured the return of Taylor Swift to a country stage. That her acoustic performance of "Betty" was lost in conversation only speaks to the strength of some of the other highlights from a truly strange and somber night in Nashville.

The 2020 ACM Awards featured live performances from the Bluebird Cafe and Grand Ole Opry House and pre-taped performances from the Ryman Auditorium. Click any link below to learn more about each and then see some of our favorite photos from the stage of the 2020 ACMs.
