Playing EXCLUSIVE: The Top Moments From the ACM Honors You Didn't See

The 2016 ACM Honors, which took place on Aug. 30, were broadcast on Friday, but there were a few things the telecast didn't show you.

ET was on hand in Nashville, Tennessee, for all the behind-the-scenes fun that didn't make it to air. Read on for our top moments from the event.

Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell's pre-show ritual. The country crooners joked with ET that they gave each other a hand getting dressed for the occasion. "We saw each other in our underwear, because we were changing together to get our outfit picked out," Bryan said. "It's been a long time since I've seen Cole in his underwear."

Lady Antebellum's pre-show freakout. This was the country trio's first time hosting the show, and they were understandably a little self-conscious about it. "Please don't judge us if we mess up," Dave Haywood told ET. Meanwhile, Hillary Scott was especially concerned about living up to last year's hosts. "We have Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley in the front row," she said. "I'm going to tell them beforehand, 'Don't judge!'"
