And the winner is… Carrie Underwood! With a grand total of 3 wins, Carrie closed out the show by accepting the top award of the night, Video of the Year! Congrats!
Carrie Underwood, 32, has plenty of reason to celebrate after sweeping the 2015 CMT Music Awards. Thanks to her fans non-stop voting, the new mom took home all 3 awards she was nominated for and completely stole the show. Best of all? She won top honors by taking home Video of the Year!
Looking more beautiful then ever at her first awards show since welcoming her son, Isaiah, Carrie had an incredible night at the CMT Music Awards. Throughout the show she took home the awards for Female Video of the Year, Collaborative Video of the Year, and, last but not least, Video of the Year!
“I don’t know what to say,” Carrie said, appearing flustered with excitement as she accepted her buckle. “This is such an amazing blessing. I have the best fans in the world, I really do.” Aw, that’s so sweet — especially coming from the leading nominee of the show!
Thankfully, Carrie’s director, Raj Kapoor, joined her on stage to thank all of the people behind the scenes that she later joked she always “forgets” to thank. In that case, thank goodness he was there to help her out!
Of course, before Carrie walked off stage with her final award she made sure to shout out her husband, Mike Fisher, who was beaming proudly in the audience. “Thank you baby,” Carrie yelled into the mic, making sure to wave at her handsome hubby. Hopefully he headed backstage after that to help her carry all of her awards home!
Carrie Was Up Against Tough Competition
Although Carrie was ultimately crowned the winner, there were a handful of amazing artists — and videos — up for the award. Aside from Carrie and Miranda Lambert’s videos, the category’s finalists were a total boys club!
Nominees included handsome Dierks Bentley’s “Drunk On A Plane,” Florida Georgia Line’s “Dirt,” Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ It Down,” and Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again.” Winner Carrie was nominated for two of her videos, including “Something In The Water” and her amazing duet with Miranda, “Somethin’ Bad.”
