2013 CMA Awards Winners – Full List

(Taste of Country) – The 2013 CMA Awards winners earn respect and recognition from their fans and country music peers, plus a really cool, really heavy glass trophy to put on their mantel, tour bus or coffee table. Tim McGraw won two CMAs before the 2013 broadcast even started on Nov. 6. His wins for Music Video and Musical Event of the Year were not surprising. ‘Highway Don’t Care’ was also up for Single of the Year.

Kacey Musgraves, Blake Shelton and Taylor Swift had the most nominations going into the Nashville-based awards ceremony. Florida Georgia Line was also a favorite to leave needing a small moving truck to lug home trophies. Ultimately, it was George Strait and Blake Shelton who nabbed the night’s biggest awards. See the entire list below.
