The 51st Annual CMA Awards saw the best in county music come together, but it was Garth Brooks that took home the top prize, being crowned entertainer of the year.
"The most important thing other than God Himself is you, the poeple who allow us to be in the greatest music ever. Country music man," the star said while accepting his award. "I love you."
The show started off on a somber note and quickly segued into political quips with hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley mocking the president.
The evening began with the first verse of Amazing Grace performed by Eric Church before Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker and more teamed up to perform Hold My Hand.
Underwood and Paisley hosted the show for the 10th consecutive year, and Underwood opened the show by listing off recent tragedies, like the shooting in Las Vegas that claimed the lives of 58 country music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival last month.

Right now hes probably in his PJs, watching cable news, reaching for his cell phone, Paisley sung.
Underwood joined in, Its fun to watch it thats for sure, till little Rocket Man starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time hell think before he tweets.
Rotten to the core.
There’s a reason we don’t listen to anything new out of Nashville.
They are traitors to America and will go the way
of Hollywood and the NFL.
Thank you President Trump.
We would never know the hate in their heart if you had not been elected. They pretend to love our nation but secretly mock us.
Good thing is all these folks are showing us their true colors.
I watched it and thought it was relatively mild. Just subtle little jabs. If late night “comedy” was like that, I wouldn’t have a problem with it at all. JEESE, we accuse the left of having thin skin.
Dixie Chicks redux.
I am an OLD COUNTRY MUSIC FAN. I don’t even know who most of the new singers are. Don’t care.
They better watch it or they will be Dixie Chicked.
Did they “mock” Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey? I doubt it, too close to home.
i wouldn’t mind if God saw fit to remove chunks of people from this world who are worshipping golden calves of one sort or other, just as He did before in the bible.
Nope, because real sexual assault and pedophilia is okay.
The two hosts have direct ties to the NFL. Underwood sings the lead in on Sunday night football on NBC, and Paisley's ad with Peyton Manning for Nationwide insurance is arguably the most shown spot during games.
They mocked Clinton too. Some folks need to lighten up. The little ditty they did was fun. Comparing what they did to Dixie Chicks is like comparing a candle on a birthday cake to a stick of dynamite.
See, I told you country music was bunk.
NFL, Hollywood, now CMA. They can all kiss my a$$.
Those two are country-and-Western elitists.
We, the People .....are really really tired of this crapola!
Fox and Friends were trying to make light of this at 6AM
I turned them off
President Trump is overseas working his heart out for us.....and they mock him
I really didn’t need any additional incentive to hate country and western music.
Comparing President Trump to mocking Hillary is OK by you????
We had an advance warning a couple of years ago, when they had Lady Ga Ga or some other disgusting pop creature on as a performer. From what I know a lot of country music fans started tuning out then, and it may actually only be celebrity hounds watching now.
