The 2015 CMA Awards were huge for Chris Stapleton and it looks like this year may be shaping up to be the same. Stapleton received the very first CMA Award of 2016 this morning as he was named the Music Video of the Year winner for "Fire Away."
Just before hitting the stage to perform during Good Morning America's live broadcast from Music City this morning, Dierks Bentley was given the news that his collaboration with Elle King, "Different for Girls," was named the 2016 CMA Awards' Musical Event of the Year.
Both Stapleton and Bentley still have plenty to look forward to going into tonight's awards show as both are nominated in other categories.
Stapleton is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year title.
Bentley is up for Album of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
Tune into the 2016 CMA Awards airing live from Bridgestone Arena on November 2 at 7PM CST/8PM ET on ABC.
