The CMT Music Awards 2017 are the definitive night in country music — and this year's award show was another onslaught of star-studded performances which was combined the biggest names in the country music world with some special guests from outside the genre, one of whom even went home with a trophy as well.

Keith Urban was the biggest winner of the evening and ended up with four prizes. The country chart-topper’s single 'Blue Ain’t Your Color' was awarded both the highly coveted Video of the Year honor and the Male Video of the Year, while his pairing with Carrie Underwood, the incredibly catchy 'The Fighter,' was named the Collaborative Video of The Year.

He also won in the Social Superstar of the Year , which doesn’t seem to fit in with the theme of the program of all things country music television, which is typically devoted to playing music videos.

The only other musician who walked away with more than one trophy was Carrie Underwood, who collected two.
