Jason Derulo celebrated his first win at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville this week, taking home the prize for Performance of the Year with country star Luke Bryan.

Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban were among the big winners at the 2017 Country Music Television Awards on Wednesday (June 7).

Keith Urban, nominated for four awards, is the leading nominee at the fan-voted show airing live on CMT at 8 p.m.

The Australian artist, who is married to Hollywood star Nicole Kidman, also won male video, collaborative video and social superstar of the year at the Music City Center awards show.

If you've ever been stuck in an elevator, you know it's not quite as scary as movies lead you to believe, but it can be boring, stressful and really test your patience.

Underwood arrived at the ceremony in a nude illusion Elie Madi mini dress that featured a top that matched her skin tone. I love making records.

Right after that, Urban came back to the stage - high-fiving fans as he went - when actress-director Katherine Heigl announced that his "Blue Ain't Your Color" had won Male Video of the Year honors. Florida Georgia Line took the Chainsmokers to the roof of their new FGL House on Third Avenue and sang "Last Day Alive" with Nashville's skyline in the background. What is it about award shows?

"Nashville!" Kutcher yelled as he took the stage, dropping a dead catfish from his hand.

Duo Video of the Year Big & Rich feat. Jason Derulo and Luke Bryan continued their budding bromance and showed why they were winners of the "CMT Performance of the Year" award with their electrifying mash-up of "Strip it Down" and "Want to Want Me".

Late Southern-rock pioneer Gregg Allman, who was laid to rest on Saturday in Macon, Georgia, will be remembered with a special performance at the 2017 CMT Music Awards.

Lady Antebellum fans can expect a performance from the group at the 2017 CMT Music Awards.
