It’s a good thing that what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas when Nashville’s finest hit Sin City for the weekend.

PEOPLE headed to Las Vegas for the Academy of Country Music Awards, which take over the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday.

Not to brag, but we hung out with Keith Urban (swoon!), Miranda Lambert (hey, girl!) and more of your favorite country stars. From rehearsals to the ACM Party for a Cause Festival to the best cowboy hats in the business, here’s your all-access pass to all of the down-home, downright awesome fun.
