Toby Keith Turns 2012 ACM Awards Into a Party With ‘Red Solo Cup’

Toby Keith began his performance of his monster hit ‘Red Solo Cup’ while walking through the crowd at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1) with a  — you guessed it — red Solo cup in one hand and a microphone in the other.

The famed ACM award got a redesign before the 2003 show in Las Vegas. Now, artists pick up a silver statuette attached to a black base. If you look down at the trophy, you’ll notice it’s shaped like a cowboy hat. Overall, the award is much heavier than one would imagine.
