" Country group Old Dominion won song of the year and group of the year, and band members Matthew Ramsey, Trevor Rosen and Brad Tursi earned additional individual awards as songwriters for "One Man Band." The awards show aired from empty venues in Nashville with no fans and no applause, even when winners got up live to accept their awards. "But the examples set by essential workers, our first responders, along with the voices crying out for equality in all walks of life, have echoed around the world and right here in our country community." Maren Morris, who was a leading nominee, won two awards, including female artist of the year and music event of the year, for a collaboration with Miranda Lambert, Caylee Hammack, Tenille Townes, Elle King and Ashley McBryde. This is an award that I never expected to win," said Morris, who thanked her husband and baby boy, Hayes, before blurting out "Oh my God, I have to pee!" Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, weren't in Nashville, but turned a green screen room into a virtual replica of the Bluebird Cafe for their duet "Happy Anywhere." Shelton won single of the year for his song, "God's Country." Lambert performed a stripped-down version of her No. 1 song "Bluebird," at the Bluebird Cafe in a blue fringed shirt and a sparkly belt.
