CMAs: Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood Make Winning Comebacks but Kacey Musgraves Quietly Steals Show
If there’s one thing that’s usually certain about the Country Music Association Awards, it’s that whoever wins the top prize, Entertainer of the Year, will be someone who didn’t win another award all night. That was the case again this year, although uncertainty did figure in, in that it went in an upset to Keith Urban, who hadn’t picked off the competition since 2005. “I’m shocked beyond shocked,” Urban said, speaking for most prognosticators, too.
