Big Machine Label Group celebrated multiple wins and performances following the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, during an afterparty at Sake Rok Las Vegas, with plenty of sushi and cocktails.

The live broadcast on CBS featured Florida Georgia Line, who shared the stage with Backstreet Boys for a show-stopping mashup of the duo’s current single “God, Your Mama, And Me” and Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody.” Prior to the telecast, the duo won Single of the Year (“H.O.L.Y.”) and Vocal Event of the Year (“May We All” featuring Tim McGraw).

It was a big night for Thomas Rhett as he took home a pair of awards for Male Vocalist of the Year as well as Song of the Year for his three-time platinum, six-week No.1 hit “Die A Happy Man” alongside co-writers Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur. Later in the telecast, Thomas Rhett debuted his new single “Craving You” featuring Maren Morris, who joined him on stage.

Ronnie Dunn introduced Reba‘s collaboration with CCM artist Lauren Daigle on Reba’s latest single “Back To God.” A special version of the duet is out now.

Rascal Flatts also performed their single “Yours If You Want It.”
