The Academy of Country Music threw a giant party in Las Vegas, Nev., on Sunday night (April 2). The 2017 ACM Awards were three hours of big wins, epic performances ... and, for those in attendance, hangout time.

CBS' cameras caught the onstage action throughout the night, but behind the scenes and in the audience, there was plenty going on, too -- and we don't just mean Tim McGraw's reactions to the performances! The country stars in attendance were hanging out with each other in the arena, sharing special moments backstage and having plenty of fun.
