Carrie Underwood doubles up at CMT Music Awards

Carrie Underwood was the toast of the 2020 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night (October 21, 2020), doubling up with Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year honors for her song Drinking Alone.

Just weeks after sharing the Entertainer of the Year prize with Thomas Rhett at the Academy of Country Music Awards, she was back on the virtual winners’ podium at the Nashville, Tennessee-based ceremony, hosted by Ashley McBryde, Kane Brown, and Sarah Hyland.

And her wins helped Carrie break her own record as the prizegiving’s most successful artist, taking her tally to 22.

Thanking the fans who voted for her, she said: “It means so much to me and just lets me know that you’re still doing what you do, which is giving the love. Thank you fans… I don’t deserve you.”

Carrie has won the Female Video of the Year prize for the past five years.

It was also a big night for real-life couple Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, who picked up their first country music honor for the song Nobody But You, which landed the Collaborative Video of the Year award.

“We did it,” a surprised Shelton said, hugging his girlfriend after the pair won. “Oh, my gosh. This is absolutely unbelievable.”

Shocked Stefani added, “What is happening in my life?”

The stars accepted the award and gushed about how much they loved each other before toasting their success with cocktails.
