The CMT Music Awards 2018 on Wednesday were big Nashville night for Blake Shelton who walked away with two of the program's top awards, video of the year and male video of the year.

Shelton, who is a judge on NBC's "The Voice," nabbed the two wins for his song "I'll Name the Dogs" said CMT’s website. He was the only two-trophy winner of the country show, which was held at the Bridgestone Arena.

Former American Idol Carrie Underwood won the female video of the year, for "The Champion," on which she collaborated with rapper and "Fast and Furious" actor Ludacris.

Pop stars the Backstreet Boys shared the CMT Performance of the Year Award with Florida Georgia Line for the song "Everybody."

People magazine reported that Underwood and husband Mark Fisher, a former star of the NHL's Nashville Predators, walked the red carpet together for the first time since an accidental fall at her home last year left the singer with a broken wrist and 40 stitches to her face.

Host Little Big Town opened the show with skit posing as news anchors, which drew in fellow country hit makers Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Jake Owen, Jon Pardi and Dustin Lynch for a spoof on the popularity of bachelorette parties in downtown Nashville, USA Today reported.

Trace Adkins, Darius Rucker, and Florida Georgia Line poked fun at England's royal family, with Rucker dressed as Queen Elizabeth while Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard portraying Prince Harry and Prince William in the back of a horse-drawn carriage.
