Big Machine Label Group had big reasons to celebrate in Las Vegas on Sunday night after the ACM Awards. BMLG artist Thomas Rhett earned his first ACM Award for Single Record of the Year for “Die a Happy Man,” while Florida Georgia Line took home their third consecutive ACM Vocal Duo of the Year. Earlier in the week, the duo was also honored by the RIAA with a Diamond Award for “Cruise.” It is the only country single to be certified 10x platinum.

Other BMLG appearances included Tim McGraw‘s performance of “Humble and Kind,” backed by a diverse group of singers from around the world. Cassadee Pope made her debut appearance on the ACM Awards, performing “Think of You” with Chris Young. Additionally, Martina McBride and Maddie & Tae served as presenters.
