Three of tonight's top CMA Awards nominees have been given an early taste of victory.
Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley all came away winners on ABC's “GMA” this morning with wins for Musical Event of the Year (Urban and Lambert, for their “Fuse” duet “We Were Us”) and Music Video of the Year (Bentley's “Drunk on a Plane,” which also netted director Wes Edwards a trophy). The categories were announced ahead of this evening's ceremony at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, where the show is being held.
Bentley is the most-nominated male artist at tonight's show with five nods including Album of the Year, while Lambert is the top nominee overall with nine including Entertainer of the Year. Urban is up for a total four awards.
Hosted for the seventh time by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, the 48th Annual CMA Awards airs tonight at 8 PM on ABC.
