CMA Awards 2015: The Complete Winners List:

The 49th CMA Awards are held tonight at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, with Eric Church and Little Big Town leading all nominees with five nominations. Keep refreshing this page for real-time updates to the winners list below. (*Winners in bold.)

Little Big Town picked up the first televised award of the evening, with their sublime hit "Girl Crush" being named Single of the Year. 

"This is about a 6/8 ballad about jealousy and heartache...Single of the Year! This is about being brave and being bold," said the group's Karen Fairchild, pointing out the old-school feel of the song. "Country radio, thanks for having the guts to play it and for all the gatekeepers for not getting in the way of following our gut and our heart, because the fans want to hear it. They want to hear it."

Earlier today, duo Maddie & Tae won their first CMA Award, taking home the trophy for Music Video of the Year for "Girl in a Country Song," while Keith Urban and Eric Church received Musical Event of the Year honors for their duet "Raise 'Em Up," off Urban's album Fuse.
