2017 CMA Awards winners: Full list of Country Music Association winners

The 51st Annual Country Music Association Awards were handed out on Wednesday night, November 8, during a ceremony that was broadcast live on ABC. It was hosted for the 10th year in a row by country music stars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, both of who are CMA Award winners in their own right. So who took home prizes in all 12 categories? Scroll down for the full list of winners, which we’ll be updating as they’re announced.

Miranda Lambert entered these awards with the most nominations. Her five bids included Album of the Year (“The Weight of These Wings”), Single of the Year (“Tin Man”), Song of the Year (“Tin Man”), Female Vocalist of the Year, and Music Video of the Year (“Vice”). Leading into the CMAs she was forecast to win the most awards of the night, but she faced stiff competition from Keith Urban, who was up for four awards. He also contended for Single and Music Video (both for “Blue Ain’t Your Color”) in addition to Male Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year, which he previously won in 2005.

Urban was up against two other past winners in the Entertainer of the Year contest: double champ Luke Bryan (2014-2015) and five-time victor Garth Brooks (1991-1992, 1997-1998, 2016). Rounding out that category were Chris Stapleton and Eric Church, who were both aiming for their first victory in that marquee race. Bryan was the favorite to win for the third time in four years according to our racetrack odds, so how did our predictions do? Follow along below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
