Luke Bryan is the 2015 CMA Awards Entertainer of the Year!

An emotional Bryan took the stage to express his gratitude for the night's highest honor.

"CMAs ... Thank you, Lord, thank you, Jesus, thank you everyone in Heaven looking out for me," he said as he accepted his trophy. "Baby, thank you again for letting me go out on the road so many times ... What an amazing night of music. Watching Chris Stapleton having this night is so uplifting."

Bryan went on to thank his label, producer, publisher and crew on the road, including his band and bus and truck drivers, and "all the people that laid down their hard-earned money to come see my show, the fans."

"Country radio, what an amazing thing we get to do. I love you," Bryan concluded, before acknowledging his fellow Entertainer of the Year nominees, including Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert.

"This is the best business in the world with the best people ...," he said. "I love you country music, I love you fans, I love you baby ... Leesburg!"

This is Bryan's second consecutive CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year. He was also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year.
