Check out the winners at 2016's CMA Awards
It was an incredible night for country music, as the Country Music Association honoured the legendary country singers from over the years, including an opening montage that kicked off with a tribute to Merle Haggard performed by Vince Gill and Merle's son Ben, through to five of the finest female vocalists paying their respects to Dolly Parton.
Plus, for the first time in a long time, no singer won multiple awards. It was great to see Maren Morris and Brothers Johnson picking up accolades, along with favourites Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw.
