Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll make splash at CMA Awards

Lainey Wilson won five awards at the Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday night, including the top prize of Entertainer of the Year. 

She told the crowd, "I've lived in this town for 12 and a half years, and it finally feels like country music is starting to love me back." 

She is the first woman since Taylor Swift in 2011 to win Entertainer of the Year. 

Tracy Chapman was the first Black woman to win a CMA Award.  

She got Song of the Year for "Fast Car," a cover of a song by Luke Combs that made it popular again after being out for 35 years. 

For Best New Artist, Jelly Roll gave the most moving speech of the night. 

"There is something poetic about a 39-year-old man winning new artist of the year," he told us. 

"I want you to know why the window is bigger than the rearview mirror. "Because what you see is much more important than what you see behind you."
