CMT Music Awards 2017: Keith Urban Leads The Winners List – Forbes
The 2017 edition of the CMT Music Awards have wrapped, and this yearâs staging was another onslaught of star-studded performances that combined the biggest names in the country music world with some special guests from outside the genre, one of whom even went home with a trophy as well.
Keith Urban was far and away the big winner of the evening, as he ended up with four prizes. The country chart-topperâs single âBlue Ainât Your Colorâ was awarded both the highly coveted Video of the Year honor and the Male Video of the Year, while his pairing with Carrie Underwood, the incredibly catchy âThe Fighter,â was named the Collaborative Video of The Year. He also won in the Social Superstar of the Year vertical, which doesnât seem to fit in with the theme of the program of all things country music television, which is typically devoted to playing music videos.
The only other musician who walked away with more than one trophy was Carrie Underwood, who collected two. Fellow country acts Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan and Lauren Alaina were also victorious, as was pop singer Jason Derulo, who partnered with Bryan for a very special televised showing of his single âWant To Want Me,â which has now won the pair of singers a CMT Music Award.
