For a while it looked liked the biggest avenue for controversy coming out of the Academy of Country Music Awards on Monday night, was that it was being broadcasted on Amazon Prime, instead of free over the air television.
That was until, Morgan Wallen won Album of The Year.
The 28 year old star took the stage after his win and thanked his son, fans, and god.
Wallen’s win came a year after he was banned from the awards for a tape that showed him using racial slurs. And that was after another video showed him at a college party in the middle of a pandemic without a mask, just days before he was supposed to appear on Saturday Night Live.
But all of that was behind him at the ACMs.
And fans had both good things and bad things to say about his victory..

Give that man his gosh damn award! Thankfully the #ACMawards didn’t succumb to the cancel culture pressures like other award shows have. Every artist in Nashville knows he deserved that award, like him or not. So happy for the kid. 🤙🏽🤙🏽#CountryMusic #MorganWallen pic.twitter.com/vO0o3p5dVm

Does your "savior Jesus christ" help you drop those N bombs too Morgan Wallen? Album of the year?? For the record, about 10 months is how long you will get punished for being racist in country music #ACMawards

Lol @MarenMorris throwing a little fit that Morgan Wallen won album of the year. He’s got more good songs on part 1 of his double album than she’s had her entire career. Grow up
