Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton co-hosted the 50th annual awards.

George Strait — the most decorated ACM Award winner ever — was one of the first performers to hit the stage at the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony in Arlington, Texas, on Sunday, April 19.

The country legend played a medley of something old (his classic hit "All My Ex's Live in Texas"), something new (his latest single, "Let It Go") and something blue (that would be the world-weary mood that permeates many of his greatest songs, including the former). As for borrowed? Well, there's nothing Strait needs to take from anyone else — he's always been his own distinct talent.
