Florida Georgia Line took home two awards for Single of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year.
“We’ve got the hottest dates in Nashville,” Brian Kelley, of Florida Georgia Line, said. “What a special night to bring our moms and have them as our dates.”
Little Big Town took home an award for Vocal Group of the Year, a category they also won at the CMA Awards in 2012.
Kacey Musgraves took home New Artist of the Year.
“I am so excited to be a part of the women in country music movement,” Musgraves said. “Last year I had really crappy seats and I was sitting in the back with my roommate as a fan and now I’m here holding this thing,” she said of the award.
But George Strait is no stranger to holding a CMA Award. The country music legend took home the Entertainer of the Year award. He starts his final tour in January 2014.
“I’m not totally quitting, but I’m slowing down a bit,” Strait said. “But I don’t know. [The award] gets me fired up again… The cowboy might be riding back in. I don’t know.”
