NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Carrie Underwood’s special connection with CMT viewers helped her continue her run at the CMT Awards.
Underwood won her third straight video of the year Wednesday night, taking the top honor for the fifth time with See You Again. The American Idol champion is CMT’s top overall winner with 11 belt buckles in her career.
Underwood managed to horn in on all the fun top winners Bryan and Florida Georgia Line were having. The two acts teamed up to win collaboration of the year for This Is How We Roll – a song they performed at the top of the show with Jason Derulo and ZZ Top – and each won another belt buckle trophy.
Male video of the year winner Blake Shelton bet against himself in the category, wagering that Bryan would win the category. Shelton won for Doin’ What She Likes..
The Band Perry won group of the year for Done and Cassadee Pope took breakthrough video for Wasting All These Tears.
