Thursday night's 2018 Country Music Association Awards ended with shock and a lot of happy tears from Keith Urban and his wife, Nicole Kidman, when he was named Entertainer of the Year.

Carrie was joined onstage by co-host Brad Paisley, who joked, "Remember last time, when I accidentally revealed the gender of your baby?"

"Tonight let's celebrate their lives".

That was until Keith Urban surprisingly won the top prize - entertainer of the year - moments before the three-hour show wrapped Wednesday night.

"I love you so much. Let the music unite us with love and their enduring memory".

Urban also expressed how shocked he was to win the coveted award during his acceptance speech.

When he won single of the year - where he won as a performer and producer - Stapleton said he was "thinking about the people in California right now" and he wants to "dedicate this award to them".

Garth Brooks debuted a brand new song called Stronger Than Me dedicated to his wife, Trisha Yearwood.

On a male-dominated night, Kacey Musgraves, 30, won her first big CMA prize, taking home album of the year for Golden Hour.

Underwood was overcome with emotion as she picked up her Female Vocalist trophy, telling the audience, "I have been blessed with so many things in my life, and. still haven't done anything to deserve it".

Underwood seemingly revealed a secret about the child, saying it will be a "Willie" after Paisley repeatedly asked about the sex of the baby.
