The second annual NRA Country/ACM Celebrity Shoot was one of the highlights surrounding the 47th Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. Country music sensation Blake Shelton hosted the event and was joined at the range by fellow entertainers Craig Morgan, Easton Corbin, Aaron Lewis, Neil and Reid Perry from The Band Perry, Lee Brice and more.

The event took place at Desert Hills Shooting Club and other celebrity shooters included outdoor television personalities Laura Schara and Lee and Tiffany Lakosky.

Footage from the shoot was included in the ACM Awards broadcast, which aired live on CBS on April 1.

Celebrity teams donned vests provided by Winchester and busted clays using the company’s famous Winchester AA shotshells.

“We were thrilled to support this event and help raise money for our military,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing and sales.

Team Rivette Refuge Preserve, led by Morgan and Lewis took home the honors of Top Team, narrowly winning an exciting shootout for the honor.
