Lainey Wilson was the big winner for Female Video of the Year at the 2024 CMT Music Awards on Sunday night (April 7).

She took home the award for her "Watermelon Moonshine" music video.

Wilson is not one to hide her emotions, and she gave an impassioned speech after Gayle King announced her win. She gushed over the other female artists in the category, saying:

"All of them are dear friends, and they work their tail off, and they just dedicate their life to create music and create this vision and bring it to life ... I'm so honored to be part of this category. It's really unreal, watching these girls do what they do."

She also thanked the audience who voted for the fan-voted awards for their support of country music's female artists, saying, "It's a big dang deal."

Wilson secured the win over some stiff competition. Included in the nominees were Ashley McBryde's "Light on in the Kitchen," Gabby Barrett with "Glory Days," Megan Moroney and "I'm Not Pretty," Reba McEntire's "Seven Minutes in Heaven," Kacey Musgraves and "Deeper Well" and Kelsea Ballerini's "Penthouse."

Wilson was up for three awards and was one of five artists who received the most nominations. She was nominated for Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year for her work with Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real on "More Than Friends."

Keeping with the nostalgic nature of the song, the video for "Watermelon Moonshine" takes us on a journey back in time back to first love. The video starts with an older woman digging up an old bottle of moonshine that she buried decades ago with her boyfriend. The love didn't last, but she'll always have the memories.

The 2024 CMT Music Awards took place live in Texas on Sunday (April 7), hosted by Kelsea Ballerini.
