Keith Urban may have walked away with the top honor at Wednesday night’s CMT Awards, but Carrie Underwood made history.
After walking away empty-handed at the Grammy Awards and the Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year, Urban found redemption picking up four honors including video of the year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”
The country star also won male video, collaborative video and social superstar of the year at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I love making music, I love making videos … who knows how long you get to do it,” said Urban, who also thanked his fans and his actress-wife Nicole Kidman, who sat in the audience.
“I’m just trying to make a connection,” he said.
Urban also performed, singing his disco-flavored hit “The Fighter” with Carrie Underwood, who continued to dominate as the most awarded act in the history of the CMT Awards with 17 wins.
