Carrie Underwood Brings Down the House at the 2016 CMT Music Awards
Another big night for Carrie.
Country superstar Carrie Underwood was the big winner at the 2016 CMT Music Awards, taking home two trophies and blowing the roof off the place performing her new single “Church Bells.”
Underwood nabbed awards for Performance of the Year and Female Video of the Year – both for her song “Smoke Break,” but lost Video of the Year to Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind.
It was her performance of “Church Bells,” however, that really stole the show, bringing the audience to their feet… watch!
Other big winners of the night included Thomas Rhett, who won Male Video of the Year for his song “Die a Happy Man,” Chris Stapleton’s Breakthrough Video of the Year for his song “Fire Away,” and Little Big Town, whose video for “Girl Crush” won them Group/Duo Video of the Year.

Another of the evening’s highlight included Cam and pop girl group Fifth Harmony mashing up Cam’s “Mayday” and Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home.” Take a look!
Blake Shelton was there, as well, winning CMT’s inaugural Social Superstar title, which was voted for by fans.
The 39-year-old Voice coach joked. “CMT’s Social Superstar – that’s not what I was going for, but what the hell! I have a few drinks and get on Twitter once in a while. I didn’t know you could get paid for that, but damn!”
