Wednesday night (June 7) was a busy night in Nashville.

The show itself is being hosted by none other than Charles Esten, who is best known for his work on CMT's Nashville.

The CMT Music Awards are known for creating unique made-for-television moments, and this year was no different. Keith also won for Collaborative Video of the Year, along with Carrie Underwood, for their duet "The Fighter" as well as the Social Superstar award. The two won the Collaborative Video of the Year Award for "The Fighter".

What do you want to see out of the CMT Awards this year? It's a flawless testament to how talented they truly are as artists and performers! Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley were joined by guitarist Derek Trucks for a version of The Allmans' classic "Midnight Rider".

"Fans, 'Ville, the audience, everyone who connects with this music", he said with a heartfelt attitude of gratitude.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Katherine Heigl sported pink sunglasses while Miranda Lambert sang "Pink Sunglasses" onstage.

Voting is also open for the #SOCIALSUPERSTAR Award with nominees featuring Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, and Thomas Rhett. I'm just trying to make a connection. She admitted how nervous she was, but she went on to thank everybody at CMT and all the fans.
