Despite walking away empty-handed at the Grammys and the Academy of Country Music Awards this year, Keith Urban was able to redeem himself after winning awards for his "Blue Ain't Your Color" single.

Underwood was nominated for three CMT Awards, including Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year for "Church Bells".

Urban wrote "The Fighter" about Kidman, 49, and earlier this year at the ACM awards she noted what it felt like to be the subject of a hit song.

"I love making music, I love making videos ... who knows how long you get to do it", he said, thanking his fans.

He continued, "She hates me saying this, but I want it to be said".

Nominees for male video of the year include Shelton, Aldean, Urban, Bryan, Rhett and Eric Church.
