Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett tied for ‘Entertainer of the Year’ at the Academy of Country Music Awards, one of country music’s biggest entertainment awards.
This was the third time Underwood received this award and Rhett’s first time.

“You couldn’t stand to give it to a female just one freaking year, so you make her share it and award the male as well?!” one person tweeted.
While many fans were unhappy, Underwood was gracious about sharing the win.
“Keith, what is happening right now,” Rhett told the show’s host, Keith Urban, before going into his acceptance speech.

“Thank you to the ACM not just for this (award) but for putting me in such incredible company,” Underwood said. “I am more than happy to share this with Thomas Rhett and just to have my name mentioned with his.”
