This year’s ACM Awards predictions pitted the staff of The Boot against our readers in a friendly competition to see who came closer to guessing this year’s biggest winners. In the end, we were both right about some things — and both wildly off the mark in some other categories.

Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw were just some of the big-name country stars who were multiple nominees this year. Reader voting began last month and just closed last week. We tabulated the results, and included them alongside our staff predictions below. Take a look at each category to see how your predictions compared with ours, and who actually won the night’s biggest awards.
