Carrie Underwood makes history at the CMT Awards

Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban were among the big winners at the 2017 Country Music Television Awards on Wednesday (June 7, 2017).
American Idol winner Carrie, who was up for three awards on the night, has landed a place in history thanks to this year's ceremony – she has now collected a total of 17 CMT Awards over the course of her career and is the first artist to have accomplished this feat.
Thank you God for so many incredible blessings,” the blonde beauty gushed while accepting Female Video of the Year for her tune Church Bells, before giving a shout-out to her hockey player husband Mike Fisher and his team the Nashville Predators.

Me and my husband… there’s a lot going on in our lives," she added. "We are so thankful and so blessed. Go Preds!"
Carrie and her duet partner Keith also picked up the Collaborative Video of the Year award for their The Fighter single's music promo and they brought the house down at the ceremony with a powerful rendition of the track.
"You've all heard Keith and Carrie sing their smash hit The Fighter, but I guarantee you've never heard it like this," the night's host, Nashville star Charles Esten announced while introducing the dazzling number to a roaring crowd.

The ballad was inspired by Urban's marriage to actress Nicole Kidman, who watched proudly from the audience. The Australian musician also walked away with the Social Superstar award before being given the coveted honour of Video of the Year for his hit song Blue Ain’t Your Color.

Carrie Underwood Triumphs as 2017 Female Video of the Year Recipient: “Thank you so much, Wayne Isham thank you so much for directing this video and thank you to all the people that came out to see us on tour and were a part of this video,” Underwood said of her second award of the night. “Thank you for voting, this awards show is really cool because it’s voted on by you guys and you guys are the ones that buy our music and come see us play, that support us in every single way.

Keith Urban Rakes in Male Video of the Year Honor at 2017 CMT Awards: “Thank you. Fans, everybody in the ‘Ville, thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me. I want to say a massive thank you to my wife, Nicole Mary. You have no idea how much of what I do she’s involved in every little piece of it, especially the videos and helping me. She hates me saying this, but she helps me so much make these videos what they are….Read More ...Sounds Like Nashville.com

There were plenty of other noteworthy moments at the ceremony, including the opening number, which saw Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley come together with his country music colleagues Darius Rucker and Jason Aldean to kick off the night with a heartfelt tribute to late rocker Gregg Allman, who passed away last month (May17).

“This is for the one and only Mr. Gregg Allman,” Aldean said before the three played a passionate cover of the Allman Brother’s Band classic Midnight Rider.
Good friends Jason Derulo and Luke Bryan also sent the audience over the moon with an exciting duet rendition of the R&B star's hit 2015 single Want to Want Me, which earned them the CMT Performance of the Year trophy for their version of the song performed during an episode of TV show CMT Crossroads.
Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Rachel Bilson, Jada Pinkett Smith and Johnny Galecki were among some of the A-list presenters at the star-studded event, which was held at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee and broadcast live for country fans throughout the world.

Billboard: CMT Music Awards 2017: All the Performances Ranked From Worst to Best

#12. Brett Eldredge -- "Something I'm Good At" : Eldredge brought along a drum line to inject his latest single with extra vigor. The band's bright colors and additional rhythmic power buoyed Eldredge during the song's dragging half-rapped portions.
#1. Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood -- "The Fighter": Urban and Underwood promised to radically rework their duet and succeeded on all fronts: in place of the steamrolling album version, they started "The Fighter" as a beat-less number shot through with yearning. Urban opened with pretty, languorous intro, and he traded lines with Underwood from across a distant walkway -- a simple and effective staging device. By the time the drums kicked in, the audience was already swooning.
