George Strait, Jennifer Nettles Win CMA’s Top Tunes
The CMA's Single of the Year award goes to George Strait for 'I Saw God Today.' Strait thanked the songwriters for his big win, his 20th career CMA trophy.
"Rodney, Monty and Wade -- thank you so much for writing such a beautiful song. Y'all are very gifted," said Strait. "Thank you for letting me sing such a beautiful song."
The CMA's Song of the Year, awarded to the songwriter, goes to Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles for 'Stay.'
"I love writing songs and performing, and I love the fans for coming out to see what we write," Nettles said in her acceptance speech. "It has been a gift from the beginning, a gift to write ... and I hope it touched your hearts."
'Stay' has been quite a fruitful song for Sugarland. It also took home Song and Single of the Year at the ACM Awards earlier this year.
