Carrie Underwood extended her run as the most decorated act in the history of the CMT Music Awards with her 20th win Wednesday night. Underwood won two prizes at the fan-voted show, including video of the year for "Cry Pretty" and female video of the year for "Love Wins." "Fans, thank you so much. I saw you guys doing the Twitter parties and getting together and doing your thing and voting," she said. "None of us would be able to do any of what we do if not for you guys. You guys put us here. You guys keep us going. You guys let us live out our dreams." "It is my husband's birthday today—look what they got you," she told former hockey player Mike Fisher, who sat in the audience. The Grammy-winning country star also performed at the show honoring the year's best country music videos, which took place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, the AP reports.

Dan + Shay—who won a Grammy this year as well as honors at the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Billboard Music Awards—kept their year of winning alive by taking home duo video of the year for "Speechless." Zac Brown Band won group video of the year for "Someone I Used to Know." Ashley McBryde won breakthrough video of the year. Keith Urban and Julia Michaels—the pop singer who has co-written hits for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez—won collaborative video of the year for "Coming Home," while Kane Brown won male video of the year for "Lose It." Luke Combs and R&B singer Leon Bridges, who won his first Grammy this year, won CMT performance of the year for "Beautiful Crazy" from the series CMT Crossroads.
