Top 5 Television-Worthy Performances From the 10th Annual ACM Honors Ceremony

It was a muggy 95-degrees in Nashville yesterday (Aug. 30), but it was even hotter in the Ryman Auditorium last night for the 10th annual ACM Honors. Seriously, the Mother Church needs a new AC, but that didn’t stop the capacity crowd from enjoying a bevy of performances from country music’s biggest stars as they took the stage to pay tribute to the night’s honorees.

The five standout performances of the evening included ditties from a handful of country’s most talented ladies—and one pop/R&B star—as well as an all-star medley from four of country’s top crooners.
