Keith Urban have plenty to celebrate this week after winning big at the 2017 CMT Music Awards Wednesday night. The New Zealand-born Australian musician won four prizes during the show held at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn.
“This award is for everybody watching this, everybody outside who couldn’t get in, everybody who comes to see us play in concert. I wish God’s blessings for you and all of your families. I love making music,” Urban said after picking up Video of the Year. The 49 year old country star also won for Male Video of the Year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color” and the fan voted CMT Social Superstar, while his duet with Carrie Underwood in “The Fighter” was named the Collaborative Video of The Year.
This year, the show was moved from Bridgestone Arena to Music City to give way to hometown NHL team Nashville Predators’ play for the Stanley Cup. The show opened with Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley, Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean, and Derek Trucks performing an Allman Brothers’ song “Midnight Rider” as a tribute to the late Gregg Allman who died on May 27.
