Both artists have won two each, with the former sharing Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year prizes with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban for their collaboration 'Highway Don't Care'.

Tim McGraw took home the first two trophies from the 47th Annual Country Music Association Awards. The "It's Your Love" hitmaker won Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year awards which were announced by Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday morning, November 6, hours before the CMAs kicked off.

He beat out Blake Shelton and Pistol Annies whose collaboration "Boys 'Round Here" was also nominated in those two categories.

Later in the night, Florida Georgia Line nabbed the first award, Single of the Year, announced at the ceremony hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. The duo edged out Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves and Darius Rucker with their song "Cruise", thanking producer Joey Moi multiple time for "making magic."

Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard added another trophy to their shelf with Vocal Duo of the Year award, which was also vied by Sugarland, The Civil Wars, Big & Rich, Love and Theft and Thompson Square. This time, they took the opportunity to thank their celebrity supporters like Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and Jake Owen.
