ACM Awards 2017: Florida Georgia Line and Backstreet Boys deliver explosive performance

Prior to even stepping on the stage at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, to perform "It Ain't My Fault", the Brothers Osborne knew they were big winners.

There's good news for fans of the two bands: Backstreet Boys will be joining Florida Georgia Line on select dates during FGL's "The Smooth Tour presented by Old Camp Whiskey", including stops in Minneapolis, Boston and Chicago.

Did your favorite artists hit the jackpot during the 52nd annual ACM Awards on Sunday (April 2)? Yet, it wasn't until the musical pairing tore into a rendition of Backstreet Boys' huge hit "Everybody" that the arena seemed to go insane.
