Keith Urban opened Monday night’s (April 11th) CMT Music Awards with his inspirational, dream-big single, “Wild Hearts,” pumping up the crowd and the viewers at home for the show.

Carrie Underwood, who performed a dreamy, acrobatic performance of “Ghost Story” from her residency Reflections at Resorts World in Las Vegas, won big at the show with Jason Aldean and their duet “If I Didn’t Love You.” They took home both Collaborative Video of the Year and the night’s top honor, Video of the Year.

Parker McCollum, who sang his No. 1 “To Be Loved By You” on the Ram Stage, received his first-ever CMT Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year for the same song.

 

 

George Strait won CMT Performance of the Year at for his version of “Is Anybody Going to San Antone” from CMT Giants: Charley Pride…and it was King George’s first-ever CMT Music Award. He wasn’t in attendance, but sent a video message to accept the award.

Little Big Town performed twice during the show. The quartet delivered the debut performance of their new single, “Hell Yeah,” and also performed with Jimmie Allen and Monica on Jimmie’s song, “Pray.”

Maddie Font gave a very emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech after she and Taylor Kerr picked up the award for CMT Group/Duo Video for “Woman You Got.” “I missed you. I missed you so much,” she told her duo partner, who appeared virtually at the awards show, holding her baby Leighton who was born nearly three months early. “I can’t do this without you. That’s my girl.”
