As in most major award entertainment shows, not every winning category is featured during the televised event.

Reba McEntire has hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards solo for over a decade until just last year. In 2011, the ACMs decided to switch things up and add Blake Shelton in as co-host.

Trouble? What trouble?
