Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena was the place to be on Wednesday evening as the 2019 CMT Music Awards honored the year’s best in country music videos.
Kane Brown, who scored the prize for Male Video of the Year, earned the title with his video for “Lose It.” The song, which Brown wrote with songwriters Chase McGill and Will Weatherly, is the lead single to his second studio album, Experiment.
“This is awesome. I started on Facebook and I got to thank all my fans, who have been behind me through it all,” the 25-year-old artist told the crowd. He also thanked his pregnant wife, Katelyn Jae, who proudly watched on from her seat inside the Bridgestone Arena.
Brown, who hugged fellow artist Luke Bryan on his way up to receive his award, was up against heavy hitters Cole Swindell, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Bryan and Thomas Rhett in the category.
This year’s live CMT Music Award telecast, hosted for the second consecutive year by country group Little Big Town, featured a record-breaking lineup of musical performances. There were also a number of collaborative performances featured during the show as well. Aside from winning Male Video of the Year, Brown also scored a Video of the Year nomination for his song, “Good As You.”
