There were so many performances at the 2018 ACM Awards that commercial breaks were welcome interruptions. The millions of television viewers needed a break to grab refreshments ... or to wipe away tears.

Some of these performances were downright exhausting. Take Carrie Underwood, for example. What began as a nervous, timid version of her new song "Cry Pretty" quickly morphed into one of the most powerful country music TV moments of the decade. It's as if we were witnessing the singer find herself in a song.

Kenny Chesney's opening performance of "Get Along" and Kane Brown's duet with Lauren Alaina were two more ACM Awards performances we loved. Which was your favorite? Maybe it came when Dierks Bentley pulled his wife out of the crowd or when Kelsea Ballerini dropped from the rafters?
