CowBuzz: Romo, Witten, Aikman Give Cowboys Flavor to 50th ACM Awards

The stars were out for as The Academy of Country Music held its annual awards show live from AT&T Stadium last night.

The event is usually held in Las Vegas but travelled to North Texas for the 50th anniversary airing.  It also set a Guinness World Record for most attended live awards show with an announced attendance of 70,252.

You could definitely tell the show was hosted by the home of the Cowboys as the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders performed and greeted guests on the red carpet before the show, and helped stand in as ushers to present awards during.

Cowboys past and present were also integrated into the show.

Tony Romo attended the awards with his wife Candice and later took the stage to throw a pass to cohost Luke Bryan before introducing Dierks Bentley.

Jason Witten took to the red carpet before the show and took the stage with Hunter Hayes to talk about the ACM Awards' partnership with Child Hunger Ends Here.

The great Troy Aikman was also a part of the performance as he was part of one of the most moving moments of the night.  On the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombings, he introduced Alan Jackson who sang his hit song "Where Were You".
