Carrie Underwood won Video of the Year at Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards for “Hallelujah,” her collaboration with John Legend. It’s the second consecutive year that Carrie has won the big prize.
This gives Carrie her 23rd CMT Music Video award, extending her run as the most-winning artist for the show. It also gives John, an EGOT winner, his first award in country music, although he was previously nominated for an ACM Award with Carrie.
Kane Brown was the only multiple category award winner of the night. He took home both the Male Video and the Collaborative Video of the Year trophy for his performance of “Famous Friends” with Chris Young.
The legendary Linda Martell was honored in a special segment hosted by Mickey Guyton before she was presented with the CMT Equal Play Award.
