                            CMA Awards 2019 complete winners list: Maren Morris wins big, takes home Album of the Year

The gala event went live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday, November 13, with country music legends Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire co-hosting with Carrie Underwood. The three-hour long event took us through some of the most incredible performances that we had ever seen at country music awards, making it historic. The 53rd edition was more special with female hosts, all-women groups, and some of the most talented female singers taking the lead, and became a true definition of women power in country music in America.

Maren Morris was the star of the night, leading with six nominations across different categories. And here are the winners of the night, as announced by the Country Music Association.
