NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena is turning into quite a memorable place for Carrie Underwood and her hunky husband, NHL star Mike Fisher.
Underwood won her third video of the year award at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night, carving yet another great memory out for the couple in the home of the NHL’s Nashville Predators.
Underwood’s two wins — she also won for collaboration of the year for “Remind Me,” with Brad Paisley — mean she’s now won nine CMT belt buckles since 2006, including video of the year awards. That matches Taylor Swift’s run in that fan-voted category over the same period.
The former “American Idol” winner was the night’s only multiple winner.
Luke Bryan pulled off the surprise of the night, taking male video of the year for “I Don’t Want This Night to End.” After beating out country’s top male stars, Bryan rewarded his fans by tossing a pair of boxers into the crowd.
It was far from the raciest moment of the night. Kellie Pickler pretended to motorboat an imaginary pair of breasts to introduce Little Big Town’s performance of “Pontoon,” complete with a full-sized pontoon boat and bikini-clad “swimmers” floating around the stage.
