Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean win big at the ACM Awards
Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton and Miranda Lambert were the big winners at the 53rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony in Las Vegas Sunday night.

Reba McEntire hosted the gala, which aired live on CBS.

Aldean won the evening's top honor of Entertainer of the Year, while Stapleton was named Male Vocalist of the Year and took home the Album of the Year prize for From a Room: Volume 1.

Stapleton wasn't able to attend the event, however, because his wife Morgane had given birth to their sons and the family was home in Nashville.

"Those little rascals came a little bit early," McEntire told the crowd. "Hot off the press! ... Twin boys."

Miranda Lambert won the award for Female Vocalist of the Year and her record "Tin Man" was voted Song of the Year.

Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" won for Single Record of the Year and the prize for Vocal Event of the Year went to Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood for "The Fighter." Old Dominion won the trophy for Vocal Group of the Year.

Huey Lewis and the News has canceled all of its upcoming concerts.

Lewis, the band's 67-year-old lead singer, made the announcement Friday on social media, explaining he has been having trouble hearing due to Meniere's disease and "can't hear music well enough to sing."

"The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch," Lewis said, adding he has seen several doctors who urged him to stay off the stage until his condition improves.

"I feel horrible about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans," he wrote. "I'm going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I'll be able to perform again."

The band is known for its pop hits "The Power of Love," "Jacob's Ladder," "Heart and Soul," "I Want a New Drug," "Heart of Rock & Roll," "If This is It" and "Hip to Be Square."

Jet Li, Gong Li join cast of Disney's live-action 'Mulan'
Jet Li and Gong Li have been cast in Disney's upcoming live-action adaptation of Mulan that stars Chinese actress and singer Liu Yifei in the title role.

Jet Li is in final talks to portray the emperor of China, who prepares for war by ordering one male from each household to join the military.

Gong Li will star as the film's villain, a powerful witch who differs from the male villain Shan Yu used in Disney's 1998 animated version of Mulan.

The cast also includes Donnie Yen as Commander Tung, a mentor and teacher to Mulan.

Niki Caro (McFarland, USA, The Zookeeper's Wife) is directing the film, set to hit theaters on March 27, 2020, from a script by Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Elizabeth Martin. Jason Reed, Chris Bender and Jake Weiner are producing, along with Hong Kong-based producer Bill Kong (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) who is executive producing.

Mulan is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a young woman who disguised herself as a man to take her father's place in war.
