PHOTOS: What the ACM Awards Looked Like in 1994

25 Behind-the-Scenes Images That Will Make You Feel Major FOMO

We can’t get Jason Aldean’s “1994” out of our heads scrolling through these epic scenes from that year’s Academy of Country Music Awards.

And they only affirm our beliefs that we were completely born in the wrong decade because that show looked like a total blast. We already have closets full of threads to match because most of 1994’s fashion trends -- mullets, big hair styled high to the heavens and boots with skirts -- have made a comeback 25 years later.
