Lainey Wilson emerged the top winner at the 57th CMA Awards Wednesday night, accepting five statues for categories including the night’s most prestigious award, Entertainer of the Year, along with Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year and more.

Wilson is the first female to win Entertainer of the Year since Taylor Swift took the trophy in 2011.

“This is all I’ve ever wanted to do; this is all I’ve known how to do,” Wilson said from the stage. “I think we’ve played about 186 shows this year. I’ve been in this town for 12 ½ years, and it finally feels like country music is loving me back. I love country music with my whole heart. Thank you all for letting me be me and giving me this opportunity.”

Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning hosted the show, which was packed with memorable performances and rousing collaborations, including: Jelly Roll and Wynonna; Little Big Town with Tanya Tucker; Old Dominion with Megan Moroney; HARDY, Morgan Wallen and Post Malone for Joe Diffie; Kenny Chesney with Mac McAnally and Alan Jackson with Zac Brown Band for Jimmy Buffett and Chris Stapleton with Carly Pearce.

HARDY was the night’s other top winner, taking two categories before the show started with Wilson for their duet “wait in the truck.”

Other winners include Chris Stapleton, Old Dominion, Brothers Osborne, Luk Combs and Jelly Roll. Here’s a complete list of the night’s winners.
