The winners are in for the 2016 CMT Music Awards, and one popular country star in particular made history on this Wednesday night.

Carrie Underwood at CMT Awards 2016

Nominated three times, Carrie Underwood won trophies for Performance of the Year and Female Video of the Year for "Smoke Break."

Underwood lost Video of the Year to Tim McGraw's "Humble and Kind," but still holds the record for most Video of the Year wins with six.

Carrie also now has 16 trophies, more than any other artist in CMT Awards history since the show debuted in the summer of 2005.

"I want to thank you guys for coming out and supporting country music on tour," Underwood said, accepting Performance of the Year.

"God bless you guys. We've spent the first part of the year on the road and it's just been so wonderful to see so many people come out."

"I know I speak for everybody out there - all of us artists who say you guys are the reason that we get to do what we get to do."

Other big winners of the night included Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town and Blake Shelton, the CMT Social Superstar.

Seriously, that is a real award voted on by fans.

"CMT's Social Superstar - that's not what I was going for, but what the hell!" the 39-year-old Voice coach said of the honor.

"I have a few drinks and get on Twitter once in a while," Shelton added. "I didn't know you could get paid for that, but damn!"
