Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood Score ACM Vocal Event of the Year

Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood get to add an ACM Award to their lists of accolades after it was announced that their collaboration on the No. 1 single “The Fighter” would be taking home the prize for ACM Vocal Event of the Year.

“It was such a pleasure to do this song with Carrie Underwood,” Urban said upon receiving the award. “Baby girl, I love you so much and our girls watching at home. And country radio for all of your support as well.”

Underwood had just finished the television premiere of “Cry Pretty” when her name was announced as vocal event winner. She came back on the stage still in her performance dress, catching her breath and obviously overly excited about the new trophy.

“Thank you for having me,” Underwood told Urban. “I’m still kinda shaky right now, thank you guys thank you country radio.”

The other superstar collaborations in the category included “Craving You” by Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris, “Dear Hate” by Maren Morris and Vince Gill, “Funny (How Time Slips Away)” by Glen Campbell and Willie Nelson, “The Fighter” by Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, and “What Ifs” by Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina.

The 53rd Annual ACM Awards will be hosted by Reba, and will live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
