Carrie Underwood, Joey + Rory and More Win 2015 Inspirational Country Music Awards
The country superstar's "Something in the Water" nabbed Mainstream Song of the Year and Video of the Year, and Underwood was named Mainstream Country Female Artist of the Year -- all on the evening before her newest album, Storyteller, was released.
Underwood is up for Female Vocalist of the Year and Music Video of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards in early November -- perhaps these 2015 ICM Awards wins are a premonition?
Other 2015 ICM Awards winners include husband-and-wife duo Joey + Rory, who won Mainstream Country Duo/Group of the Year, and T. Graham Brown, who was named Mainstream Country Male Artist of the Year. A full list of winners can be found on the awards show's website.
The win is bittersweet for Joey + Rory, however: The couple announced on Friday (Oct. 23) that Joey Feek's cancer has returned, and she will not be pursuing further treatments. Their deep faith has pulled them through this heartbreaking journey thus far, and winning an ICM Award shows just how much of an impact their faith-filled music and lives have made in the country music industry.
The ICM Awards are part of the annual ICM Faith, Family and Country Week, celebrating the year-long accomplishments of the industry's brightest new talent, stars and living legends. Throughout the week, there are nightly showcases, a luncheon, a membership breakfast and more, with the awards ceremony as the grand finale. This year's ceremony took place at Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tenn.
