Known as a night to remember for the country music community, the 51st Annual CMA Awards paid tribute to the lives lost throughout the past year and celebrated the feeling of family radiating throughout the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
For the second consecutive year, Garth Brooks earned the title of Entertainer of the Year and spread the blanketed message of love within his honorary speech. The current king of country clings to his prestigious title with a record number of wins in the category.
“The most important thing other than God himself are you — the people that allow us to be in the greatest music ever — country music,” Brooks told the uplifted crowd.
Both Chris Stapleton and Brothers Osborne stacked up a total of two awards each, with Stapleton garnered Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year and Brothers Osborne taking the prizes for Music Video of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year.
