The 2019 ACM Awards delivered a host of special memories to add to the books, ranging from lively performances by legends and contemporary stars, to a humble and classy Keith Urban taking home the prize for Entertainer of the Year. But there were plenty of other moments that proved the show was just as much fun behind the scenes as it was on the live telecast.

Just some of these photos showcase the camaraderie of the country community, as well as winners posing backstage with their new hardware. You'll find some of the stars using their trophies as props, including one of Ashley McBryde playfully placing her New Female Artist of the Year accolade on her head while Dan + Shay excitedly show off their three statues for Duo of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year.

A sweet snap of Urban and Nicole Kidman can also be found in this gallery, alongside a photo of Miranda Lambert and husband Brendan McLoughlin posing with their seatmates Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd. Scroll through to see snapshots of all the backstage highlights you didn't see during the show!
