Recap of the 51st Academy of Country Awards

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CBS) -- The 51st Academy of Country Music Awards opened with a bang by co-host Luke Bryan, who performed his hit "Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day." The song brought the audience -- which included Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman -- to their feet to clap and sing along.

Bryan then introduced his co-host, Dierks Bentley, but Bentley was instead upstaged by Blake Shelton, who launched into a performance of his new song "Came Here to Forget," about two people who start a relationship as they try to forget their exes -- sound familiar?
