But that was only the beginning of Urban’s triumphant night. As the star took to the stage at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre to accept the award, guest presenter Kathryn Hahn revealed some further surprise news. Urban had actually won two more prizes.
Indeed, not only did Urban’s Ripcord beat Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know and Chris Stapleton’s From a Room: Volume 1 to Favorite Country Album. But its biggest single, “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” also pipped Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” and Jon Pardi’s “Dirt on My Boots” to Favorite Country Song. Only Bruno Mars won more on the night.
