The 53rd Country Music Association Awards went down Wednesday night at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Longtime CMAs host Carrie Underwood was joined by “special guest hosts” Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton for country music’s biggest night, which celebrated legendary women in country music history with a special medley performance, among other things.

Garth Brooks took home the night’s biggest honor, Entertainer of the Year. He’s now a seven-time winner of that award.

Prior to the ceremony, it was announced on Good Morning America that Musgrave’s “Rainbow” video had won Music Video of the Year, while Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road (Remix)” won Musical Event of the Year. Fiddle player Jenee Fleenor was also announced as the winner of Musician of the Year award before the show. With her win, she became the first woman to take home that award.
