Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban: Big CMA Winners

Keith Urban and Chris Stapleton were the big winners at the CMA Awards this week.  Keith walked away with the coveted Entertainer of the Year honor. He’s been nominated 10 times since his first and only other win in the category back in 2005.

Chris Stapleton, the front-runner of the night, ended up winning three of the five awards he was nominated for, nabbing Male Vocalist of the Year for the fourth consecutive year. He also won the awards for Single of the Year and Song of the Year for “Broken Halos.” 

"These things are fantastic things to win, but when you get nominated or invited to these kind of parties, in my estimation you've already won and you've gotten to be far beyond anything any musician could ever dream of getting to do."
