In September, shortly after the nominees for the 2015 CMA Awards were announced, The Boot argued that at this year's awards ceremony, country music newcomers such as Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Stapleton, Maddie & Tae and Sam Hunt could give established artists a run for their money. And while the newbies didn't completely overtake Country Music's Biggest Night in 2015, their four combined wins are big news.
Maddie & Tae won their first-ever CMA Award on Wednesday (Nov. 4), for Music Video of the Year. The duo earned the trophy for the video for their debut single, "Girl in a Country Song," which was a game-changer for them.
Luke Bryan's 2015 CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year was his second consecutive win in the category. But while The Boot's staff predicted that the country superstar, who has had an incredible year, would take home the trophy, Bryan says that he wasn't so sure.
The 2015 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (Nov. 4) will go down in the books as quite the interesting, entertaining and surprising evening. For 49 years, the CMAs have showcased country's biggest, brightest and rising stars, and this year was no exception.
The 2015 CMA Awards were filled with incredible performances, from the sentimental to the explosive, the understated to the full-out rockin'. No matter the song or its vibe, the country stars who took the stage during the awards show brought it.
