CMA Awards 2018: See the complete list of winners

The most important night in country music honored the best in the genre on Wednesday night as the 2018 CMA Awards brought together Nashville's finest at the Bridgestone Arena.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley hosted the ceremony for the 11th consecutive year, and the 52nd annual show was a fun, performance-filled evening that produced some surprising winners.

Chris Stapleton entered the night with the most nominations (five), and won three of them: Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year, both for "Broken Halos." But it was Keith Urban who provided the feel-good shock of the night by winning the biggest award, Entertainer of the Year. The win left him in tears as his wife, Nicole Kidman, looked on.

Underwood won Female Vocalist of the Year, while Kacey Musgraves nabbed Album of the Year for the critically-acclaimed "Golden Hour."
