After taking home two trophies including the night’s top honor of video of the year for “I’ll Name the Dogs,” Shelton made a honey beeline over to his new bar to celebrate its official grand opening with LBT, Dan + Shay, Michael Ray and Darius Rucker.

For those who couldn’t score the coveted passes to be there, the night was full of fun covers that are ubiquitous to Lower Broadway honky-tonks.

The set list included Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried,” the Bellamy Brothers’ “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body” and the Black Crowes’ “She Talks to Angels.”
