Y'all ready to celebrate? The top country music stars and songs are set to be honored at the 2023 Academy of Country Music Awards. Believe it or not, this is the 58th edition of the awards show, which started all the way back in 1966. Buck Owens and Bonnie Owens were the first winners of the Male and Female Performer of the Year awards, respectively, and the show has honored such legends as Reba McEntire, Hank Williams, Jr., Shania Twain, Kenny Rogers, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, and many more throughout the decades.

This year's ceremony will be hosted by a pair of ACM legends, Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks. Dolly's done hosting duties before, but this is Brooks' first time as a host of the ceremony. Let's hope he leaves his alt-music alter-ego, Chris Gaines, at home. Find out how to watch the Academy of Country Music Awards below!

Where to watch the John Wick movies for free

With John Wick: Chapter 4 out now and receiving rapturous praise from critics and audiences alike, there is one question that many people are now asking: What is the greatest action film of the 21st century? Mad Max: Fury Road, Skyfall, The Raid, The Dark Knight, and Mission Impossible: Fallout all have compelling cases. However, compiling the best action films of the last 23 years and not mentioning John Wick is a crime. Arguments could be made for all the John Wick movies; that's how strong they are in the action genre.

John Wick started with a simple premise. Wick (The Matrix's Keanu Reeves, who is no stranger to action), a former hit man, returns to the criminal world he left behind after the arrogant son of a Russian mobster kills his dog, which was a gift from his now-deceased wife. Hell-bent on revenge, Wick hunts down the son with reckless abandon, killing every single person who stands in his way. John Wick was a sleeper hit in 2014, and nine years later, the story about a legendary hit man mourning the loss of his wife and dog is a global franchise. The fourth film, John Wick: Chapter 4, just earned the highest opening weekend gross of the franchise.

The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, Europe's most famous singing competition, returns this week. For those unfamiliar with the contest, European countries each submit one original song to be performed live by a singer or band from their respective country. The competing countries cast their votes for other countries' songs to determine a winner. The contest has been around since 1956, making it one of the longest-running annual, international televised music competitions.

The contest is usually held in the country of the winner from the previous year. However, the 2022 winner, Ukraine, will not host due to its war with Russia. The 2023 contest will instead take place in Liverpool, U.K. The semifinals will be hosted by Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso), Julia Sanina (The X Factor Ukraine), and Alesha Dixon (Australia's Got Talent), with Graham Norton (The Graham Norton Show) joining the trio for the final.
