Capitol Nashville artists scored three belt-buckle-shaped trophies at last night’s CMT Awards in Nashville. Keith Urban won Male Video of the Year for “’Til Summer Comes Around”; his first CMT win in this category. Also for the first time, the multi-platinum Lady Antebellum won Group Video of the Year for their smash hit, “Need You Now.” And the clever campaign to earn Luke Bryan a win for Breakthough Video of the Year (awarded to a video from an artists’ debut album) paid off, with Bryan nabbing the award.
Capitol Nashville’s roster also dazzled the audience with stellar performances on the show. Urban was joined on stage by John Mayer for some blazing guitar dueling in a first-time television performance of Urban’s song, “Hit the Ground Running. Little Big Town also took the stage to support artist Jamey Johnson with back up vocals. Lady Antebellum closed the show with a live debut of their next single, “Stars Tonight” (click below to watch!)
