This year, there is no dominant winner with an even representation of traditional and new country. Brad Paisley receives his
first male vocalist CMA award, and "Online" is named video of the year. Carrie Underwood collects her second female vocalist
award and acquires the single of the year honor for "Before He Cheats." George Strait's It Just Comes Natural gets
the album of the year honor, and his hit, "Give It Away," gives songwriters Bill Anderson, Buddy Cannon and Jamey Johnson
the song of the year. Sugarland ousts Brooks & Dunn as the vocal duo of the year, and newcomer Taylor Swift accepts the Horizon
Award. Rascal Flatts earn their fifth consecutive vocal group trophy, and "Find Out Who Your Friends Are" gives Tracy Lawrence,
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw the musical event award. The Country Music Hall of Fame welcomes broadcast personality Ralph
Emery and singer-songwriters Vince Gill and Mel Tillis.
