Urban won Video of the Year and Male Video of the Year for "Blue Ain't Your Color" and Underwood took home Female Video of the Year for "Church Bells," but that wasn't all, according to the United Press International.

The two won Collaborative Video of the Year as well for their song "The Fighter."
