The show really was one to remember with some memorable happenings including a Taylor Swift come back. Swift presented the Entertainer of the Year award, one she’s previously won herself, to Garth Brooks. A Beyonce performance also happened. The R&B/Pop singer performed a country sounding version of her new song “Daddy Lessons” with none other than the Dixie Chicks. Brad and Carrie also used politics to create some of their skits, Brad quoting Donald Trump at one point. He interrupted everything Carrie said with words like “Wrong” and “Liar” and even said ‘You’re a nasty woman” which earned a lot of laughter from the crowd.  Some of country musics legends performed during the night. There was amazing duet from Chris Stapleton, the nights biggest winner, and Dwight Yoakam.
