Attending the 2014 ACM Awards in Las Vegas, simply put amazing. Blake Shelton and Cabela’s ambassador Luke Bryan hosting the biggest night in country music, it just doesn’t get any better than that.

The performances were, well some of the best that country music has to offer, Stevie Nicks joining Lady Antebellum got me out of my seat and screaming with delight. Country music legend, Garth Brooks, performance took me back in time to my glory days in high school. Everyone at the awards show was thrilled to join him in singing “Happy Birthday” to Merle Haggard for his 77th birthday.

After 30 years in country music and a non-stop top artist his entire career, the man of country music George Straight, took “Entertainer of the Year”. Talent like his has never before been heard by country music fans and possibly never be replicated.

 

When Florida Georgia line came on stage to announce the fan voted “New Artist of the Year,” I was back on the edge of my seat. Cabela’s ambassador Justin Moore was a nominee, he is our team, having lobbied for him on social media, when he was announced the winner, it really was a win for everyone in the country that loves the outdoors, hunting and fishing. Justin embodies our heritage and is working tirelessly to ensure the continuation of our great legacy.

A HUGE thank you goes out to Shawn Cassidy and RFDTV for the outstanding seats. Thank you so much!

You get some of the most talented artists in country music all together for an archery competition, it’s bound to be a good time and it’s as true blue American as it gets.  Social media was a frenzy over which team you would vote for to win the event. #TeamLuke: Tyler Farr, Austin Webb, Kristy Titus, Brian Kelley, Dallas Davidson, Dustin Lynch, Tyler Hubbard and Lee Bryce. #TeamJustin: Wade Middleton, Chuck Wicks, Ashton Shepherd, Chase Rice, Thomas Rhett, Josh Thompson, Chris Janson and Brantley Gilbert.

Everyone was split up into teams to compete in a real deal 3D archery tournament with targets positioned from 10-30 yards. Well known radio personality, Storme Warren was emcee and entertainment for the event keeping the crowd on fire cheering for their favorite team.

Online, fans could vote for their favorite team and at the end of the competition, the team with the most votes received an extra arrow. Fans on Twitter that tweeted #ACMCabelas were entered to win a Cabela’s Regulator bow.

It was a close race but #TeamJustin took the lead with 280 points, beating #TeamLuke with only 226 points.

After the event, fans were invited to stick around and try their own hand at archery where myself and other Cabela’s Outfitters helped them through their first time shooting a bow.

Being part of the Cabela’s family is such an honor and to be invited to promote the sport of archery with some of the best in country music was beyond my wildest dreams.

No matter what team you voted for, we are all on #TeamCabelas and we all loved the Regulator bow.
