Dann Huff won the 2016 CMA Award for Musician of the Year!

Huff's Musician of the Year nomination this year was his 26th CMA Awards nod, and his third win; he last won a CMA in 2004, for Musician of the Year, although he's also been nominated for Single of the Year and Album of the Year. Until this year, Mac McAnally was on a winning streak in the Musician of the Year category; he had won the trophy every year from 2008 to 2015.

In addition to playing on several artists' album, Huff is also a sought-after producer in country music. His many credits include Keith Urban's Ripcord, Martina McBride's Reckless, Brantley Gilbert's Just as I Am, Thomas Rhett's Tangled Up and Dolly Parton's Blue Smoke, among others. Huff also plays multiple instruments, including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, dobro and banjo.

Huff beat out fellow nominees Jerry Douglas, Paul Franklin, Dann Huff, Brent Mason and Derek Wells to win the Musician of the Year trophy.
