Carrie Underwood Wins at AMAs but is She Losing with Country Fans?
Carrie Underwood was one of the big winners in the 2019 American Music Awards as she took home the trophy for Favorite Country Album for “Cry Pretty.” Not only that, but as a surprise for the singer, she was told by presenter Cobie Smulders that she has also won for Favorite Female Country Artist, beating out Kelsea Ballerini and Marren Morris.
The “American Idol” season 4 winner was emotional as she thanked her fans for voting for her.
“Thank you to the fans, you’re the ones who show up to shows, buy the music, stream the music,” she tearfully said. “You guys love on us so well, thank you so much for that.”
She also thanked the AMAs for creating the fan voted awards as the fans were the ones who cared about the music. Carrie’s win was a big deal for her fans, and it seemed to appease them after dealing with everything that went down at the 2019 Country Music Awards last Nov. 14.
Reliving The Drama Of The 2019 CMAs
It can be recalled that Carrie’s supporters were expecting the singer to win the Entertainer of The Year award at the CMAs, especially since she was the only female nominated in the category. But to everyone’s surprise, it wasn’t the “American Idol” alum, but Garth Brooks, who managed to take home the night’s biggest honor. In an interview, Garth said that he never expected to win as he thought that Carrie Underwood had it in the bag.
“It was the year of the women, and we were all expecting Carrie anyway,” he said.
Fans took to Twitter to express their outrage, calling the CMAs a sham for not giving the award to Carrie, who was thought to be most deserving of the honor. But her double win at the AMAs seems to have made everything alright.
This is the sixth time that the singer has won the Favorite Country Album award, and it’s likely that we’ll be seeing more of Carrie at next year’s award show.Given that her passionate fans are always there to support her, there’s no telling what else she can achieve as she continues topave the way for young country music artists.
