For the third year in a row, Jason Aldean nabbed the coveted Entertainer of the Year award at the 53rd annual ACM Awards on Sunday night.

It was also a huge night for birthday boy Chris Stapleton, who managed to snag three of the eight awards he was nominated for – Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year, which earned him two awards as both an artist and producer. The most exciting moment of his Sunday, however, was the birth of his twin boys, which host Reba McEntire announced after he won his first award of the night.
