Carrie Underwood Wins CMT Awards’ Video of the Year

Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani, Gabby Barrett Also Honored

Carrie Underwood was the top honoree at Wednesday night’s fan-voted CMT Music Awards, winning the climactic video of the year honor as well as female video of the year for “Drinking Alone.”

Gabby Barrett, whose crossover hit “I Hope” went No. 1 at country earlier this year and just topped the Hot AC chart this week, won breakthrough video of the year. Accepting from home like most of the honorees, she mimed “holding my fake trophy” and noted that “this is my first time receiving a television award.” Barrett’s award was presented, remotely, by Taylor Swift, who’d picked up the same trophy 13 years earlier.

Underwood’s win is her third total in that category and Rhett’s first win. They beat out other nominees Eric Church, Luke Bryan and Luke Combs. Coincidentally, a woman hasn’t won that award since 2011 when Swift last won it. Swift delivered a simple acoustic performance of “betty” from her new album “Folklore,” on a darkened Opry House stage.
