Check out the full list of the winners below via USA Today.

What I find interesting about this list is that TWO of the eight winners are American Idol winners. I’m thinking the winners of American Idol are smart to head on over to the country genre for success!
Of her big evening of awards, Underwood said that it was all about her fans. She explained, “They’re the ones in control. I have a really active fan base. The people who come to my concerts and support me, they really get out and they do stuff. They vote. Any polls or any awards show, anything that they have control of, they’re all about it.”
