Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll Among Top Winners At CMT Music Awards
Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson were the big winners at Sunday night’s (April 2) CMT Awards from Austin, with each taking home multiple awards during the star-studded evening at the Moody Center.
The awards, country music’s only entirely fan-voted show, were co-hosted by Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini and featured plenty of high-watt performances, first-ever collaborations, and world premieres.
Jelly Roll was at the podium numerous times throughout the evening as he jubilantly took home three of the coveted belt buckles during the night for Male Video of the Year, Breakthrough Male Video of the Year, and the CMT Digital-First Performance of the Year all for his smash for “Son Of A Sinner,” while Wilson won for Female Video of the Year for “Heart Like A Truck,” and shared the Collaborative Video of the Year nod with fellow first-time winner Hardy for “Wait In The Truck.”
The evening’s co-host Kane Brown and wife Katelyn Brown took home Video of the Year honors for their duet, “Thank God,” while Zac Brown Band scored Group/Duo Video of the Year for “Out In The Middle.”
Cody Johnson received the CMT Performance of the Year trophy for the riveting “‘Til You Can’t” from the 2022 CMT Music Awards, and Megan Moroney was a first-time winner for her hit “Tennessee Orange.”
