In fact, Trace cried on camera because he was so impressed LeAnn's heartfelt Patsy Cline tribute. Chelsea Handler asked the ACM host why he was "crying like a little bitch" at the show, but Trace sassed the late-night host right back!
"I was not crying," he claimed at first. "Leann Rimes was out there singing and when she finished I looked around at all the stage crew guys—you now, total badasses, and everybody was crying. I'm just saying I wasn't the only one crying!"
