Even though Carrie Underwood went home with two awards — Video of the Year for “Cry Pretty” and Female Video of the Year for “Love Wins” — at the 2019 Country Music Awards, she says her biggest accolade is husband Mike Fisher.
“Still can’t believe I walked away with 2 #CMTAwards last night!!!” Carrie wrote on Instagram on Thursday, June 6. “I also got the “Hottest Date” award! 😘 Hope you had a good birthday, babe!”
Not only did Carrie win big at the red carpet event on Wednesday, June 5, but she also made history by becoming the most-awarded artist in the show’s history. How’s that for being blessed?!
“This is absolutely incredible,” she gushed during her Video of the Year acceptance speech. “I worked on the ‘Cry Pretty’ video. This was one that was very near and dear to my heart and very important to me.”
After receiving her record 20th award at the Nashville event, Carrie thanked her fans for always being supportive of her career. “Thank you so much,” she began. “I saw you guys doing the Twitter parties and getting together and doing your thing. None of us would be able to do any of what we do if it’s not for you guys. You guys put us here. You guys keep us going. You guys let us live out our dreams and I hope that we can give a fraction of that back to you every once in a while so thank you so much.”
While walking the red carpet, Carrie wore a cute V-neck dress with beige heels and earrings. Her hubby arrived in a gray button down shirt with navy blue jeans. Once they walked inside Bridgestone Arena they held each other close and sat together during the award show between Carrie’s wins and that awesome “Southbound” performance.
