Six months after winning Entertainer of the Year at the CMAs, Aussie country crooner Keith Urban took home the same award at the 2019 ACM Awards. Besting fellow nominees Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Chris Stapleton, and Jason Aldean, a visibly shocked Urban walked to the stage to a standing ovation (but not before planting a big kiss on wife Nicole Kidman).
Urban was overcome with emotion as he accepted his award, and made sure to thank his wife first. “Thank you so much. Baby Girl, I love you so much,” he said (via People). “My team, thank you every one of you. To the fans out there, you are amazing. You have no idea what you mean to me. No idea,” he continued. The “Blue Ain’t Your Color” singer then thanked his and Kidman’s two daughters. “Baby Girl, I love you and our girls, Sunday and Faith, who are at home watching right now,” Urban added. “My whole team … I love you guys … Country radio, I love you so much. Thank you so much. God bless every one of you.”
