CMA Awards Down Over 30 Percent From 2017, Hit All-Time Low

Since 2015, Stapleton has won a total of 10 CMA awards - including his newest trophies - with the singer getting Album of the Year in 2016 for his debut album Traveller, and again in 2017 for From A Room: Volume 1.

But in a surprise result, he lost the night's biggest prize - entertainer of the year - to Keith Urban, the former American Idol judge and husband of actress Nicole Kidman. Said Carrie, "We send our love to all of you and the fearless firefighters who are out there putting themselves on the line trying to save homes and lives". Thank you for supporting daddy and loving me through all of what I do. "God bless you all", Urban said. Mike [Fisher], we're all rooting for you, buddy. "Make some noise for those boys".

Kacey Musgraves, the only woman nominated for album of the year, won the prize for "Golden Hour". She noted the "crazy timing" of the win: "I just realized this morning. You have no idea how much this award means to me".

Other performers throughout the evening were Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert, Pistol Annies and more.
