Congratulations to Keith, Miranda, and Dierks who were announced live on Good Morning America this morning as early CMA Award winners (video).
Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert took home the trophy for Musical Event of the Year for their collaboration on We Were Us. Director Wes Edwards and Dierks Bentley won the award for Music Video of the Year for their hilarious Drunk On A Plane.
After the win was revealed, Miranda said, "It's insane. It just feels great. Like I'm in such a good mood this morning. I woke up happy because it's going to be a great day."
The rest of the awards will be handed out at tonight's CMA Awards.
In addition to winning her first (but probably not last) award of the day, Miranda also revealed that she has teamed up with Ram Trucks for a new partnership. To kick things off, Dodge donated a customized Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn to benefit Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation. The truck, which is just like the one Lambert drives, will be auctioned off on eBay starting today through November 15 at ebay.com/rammuttnation.
A “dog mother” to seven rescue dogs, MuttNation’s goal is to help end animal cruelty, neglect and homelessness. In addition to the Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn, fans can also bid on other special items, including signed copies of Lambert’s “Platinum” CD, signed guitars and tickets to one of Lambert’s concerts in 2015, featuring a pre-show cocktail with her.
The auction is just the beginning of the relationship between Lambert and Ram, which will continue to evolve throughout 2015. One of the top artists in country music today, Lambert is a truck woman through and through. She’s been in trucks her whole life, from the farm she was born on in Texas, to her current ranch in Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
Fans can tune in to tonight's CMA Awards on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.
