2020 CMA Awards winners list: 54th Annual Country Music Association winners in all categories

The 54th Annual Country Music Association Awards were handed out on Wednesday night, November 11, during a live ceremony at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The ceremony was hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, but who were the big winners? Scroll down to see the complete list of CMA champs in all categories, updated live throughout the night.

Miranda Lambert came in with a leading seven nominations: Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year (“Wildcard”), Single and Song of the Year (“Bluebird”), Music Video of the Year (“Bluebird”) and Musical Event of the Year (“Fooled Around and Fell in Love”). Those seven noms broke a record for Lambert, making her the most nominated woman of all time with a total of 55 CMA bids throughout her career. And she won one of them before the show even started: she was announced as the Music Video victor in advance of the ceremony.

Lambert was still looking for her first Entertainer of the Year prize, though. This year she faced Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Eric Church and Keith Urban. Of those, only Urban had ever won before, but he wasn’t the only formidable challenger. Underwood was just coming off of an Entertainer of the Year win at the ACM Awards, while Combs had a remarkably successful year that included a chart-topping platinum album, “What You See is What You Get,” that produced four number-one songs on country radio. So how did they do? Find out below.
