2018 CMA Awards: The Complete List Of Winners

The 2018 CMAs honored the year's best in country music, but did your favorite artists win?

The 52nd Annual Country Music Association Awards kicked off at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018. Airing live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., the CMAs were hosted by country stars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. The 2018 award show marked the 11th year Underwood and Paisley hosted the event together. Before the show, the two celebs remarked on the achievement, with Paisley telling People, "The chemistry we have up there ... I think you can take that for granted, but it's really rare."

Given how comfortable Underwood must have been at the ceremony, it's no wonder she chose to reveal the sex of her unborn baby during the show. (It's a boy!)

But enough about the show's hosts. Which stars snagged CMA awards? Chris Stapleton was nominated for five awards, while Dann Huff scored four. But did they win? Keep reading to learn all about the night's big winners.
