Country music stars and fans alike flocked to Las Vegas on Sunday (April 7) for the 54th annual ACM Awards, which were held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and hosted by Reba McEntire.

The night was filled with epic performances from country’s biggest names, as well as appearances from superstars from all walks of life. Less than a week before the awards show, they revealed the last round of performers, as well as some of the presenters, which included Dennis Quaid, Beth Behrs, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jay Hernandez, Nancy O’Dell, Wilmer Valderrama, and Danica Patrick, just to name a few.


When we heard Patrick was announced as a performer, we knew two things; that she’d serve us with a fantastic wardrobe choice and that she and her boyfriend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, would land on the cutest couple’s list.


Unfortunately she was not accompanied by her football playing beau for whatever reason. Fans did spot her walk the red carpet with a hunky A-lister, but who was it?

The man that joined her in photos on ythe red carptet was was none other than actor Wilmer Valderrama, who she presented an award with later on in the night.


Valderrama currently stars on the CBS television series NCIS as fan-favorite character Nick Torres. He captured a little bit of his night with Patrick on his Instagram story, showing them ready to walk out on stage together.

Together, they handed out Album of the Year to Kacey Musgraves for Golden Hour. Watch it below.
