Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, and more to perform at the ACM Awards

Eric Church, “Give Me Back My Hometown” This year’s installment of the Grammys is even heavier on clumsy social messaging than usual, but even in that context the civil rights video montage playing behind Church’s latest great addition to the country music breakup songbook seemed exceptionally clumsy. Still, country’s representatives to the show have brought it harder than any other genre, and overall Church’s contribution kept it up. B —Miles Raymer (Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Images)
