Sin City played host to country music greats at the 46th Academy of Country Music Awards on Apr. 3.

Taylor Swift (below) was named “ACM Entertainer of the Year” at the star-studded event.

Useless Taylor Swift trivia: In the fourth grade, she won a national poetry contest.

High-powered presenters at the awards ceremony inside MGM included Caesars Palace headliner Celine Dion, Luke Bryan, Chace Crawford, The Judds and others.

Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton hosted the ceremony.

Among the more recognizable luminaries in attendance, even to those whose cup of tea country music is not, was Nicole Kidman (pictured below) who moonlights as country star Keith Urban’s spouse.

Nicole Kidman didn't seem at all surprised by the attention she and husband Keith Urban received on the red carpet.

Thanks to Tom Donoghue for the great pics.

A highlight of the awards show was when Carrie Underwood performed a medley with Aerosmith singer, and even more notably, “American Idol” judge, Steven Tyler.

There’s always something exciting going on in Vegas, hoss! Unless the use of “hoss” is offensive. In which case, replace it with “baby.” Unless that’s offensive to babies. In which case, we give up.
