The show itself was different this year due to COVID-19 precautions.  Some fans thought it lacked energy while others loved the focus on the music.

So what did the stars think? Keith Urban gave an update from his car after hosting the show saying he was still in disbelief over the tie.

Dan + Shay were on the Today show this morning to talk about what it was like to perform on stage in front of no audience.

Personally, I missed seeing the stars singing along in the audience and supporting each other so it was nice to see a few do that on Twitter.

Kelsea Ballerini tweeted shout-outs to Kane Brown, Maren Morris, and more.

And of course the moment everyone is talking about, the tie for EOTY!


How did Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood react off stage?

Thomas Rhett was on the Today show this morning where he talked about sharing the award with Carrie saying,  “It’s just amazing that that even happened…It was the most surreal moment of my life.”

Carrie Underwood said in her acceptance speech, “2020 Man” and backstage she said it was an honor not only to win but also to have the chance to honor her heroes.

She also told media after the show that she left out three important people in her acceptance speech.

First, I wanna say that I’m a dummy for not mentioning my husband or children in my acceptance speech. You would think after this many years and seeing other people do speeches and giving some of my own, I would think of people that are important to me. So, I’m sorry but I do love my children and my husband.


Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!
