When you hold an awards show in a football stadium, you're bound to have a lot of people in attendance.

According to hosts Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton, the 50th annual Academy of Country Music Awards — held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas — set a Guinness World record for the most attended live awards show.

"They say everything is bigger in Texas," Shelton shouted.
