Carrie Underwood extended her CMT Music Awards record by winning her 21st and 22nd prizes, including the night's biggest accolade, Video of the Year.
Carrie Underwood was the big winner at the CMT Music Awards, and she broke her own record with her 22nd triumph.
The 37-year-old singer/songwriter scooped her 21st and 22nd CMT gongs - the most of any artist in the show's history - with Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year accolades for 'Drinking Alone' on Wednesday night (21.10.20), and she thanked her fans for their support throughout her career.
Accepting the coveted Video of the Year award remotely, she said: "Oh my gosh, thank you so much. Fans - you guys never cease to amaze me at how hard you work.
"I saw you guys throwing Twitter parties and doing your thing and voting - thank you so much.
"This one is really all about you guys, especially because we - again - haven't been together. I feel so loved this evening, so thank you guys so much.
"Of course, all the winners and nominees tonight, this is something that's so fun for us to be able to visually bring our songs to life, so thank you for all of the support and all of the fans who have been voting for everybody ... we all feel loved tonight.
"Thank you guys so much. God bless you, and hope to see you all soon."
Several other stars also watched the awards and accepted prizes from home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But there were a handful of pre-recorded performances at Bicentennial Park in Nashville, Sycamore Farms in Arrington, Tennessee, Ruskin Cave in Dickson County, Tennessee, and the Estate at Cherokee Dock, Tennessee.
Kelsea Ballerini, Halsey and Noah Cyrus were among those who performed in person.
