Gala held April 11 in Nashville.
Gretchen Wilson was among the winners last night (April 11) at the 2005 CMT Music Awards, held at Nashville's Gaylord Entertainment Center.
Wilson took home two of the evening's nine fan-voted awards: breakthrough video of the year for her debut clip, "Redneck Woman," and female video for "When I Think About Cheatin'."
Just one video, "Whiskey Lullaby," won two awards. That clip earned its performers, Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss, one of CMT's distinctive belt-buckle style trophies for collaborative video of the year. Rick Schroder, who directed and starred in the clip, won for video director.
Keith Urban won the evening's top prize -- video of the year -- for "Days Go By." Kenny Chesney won male video for "I Go Back."
Rascal Flatts won the duo/group video prize for "Feels Like Today." Tim McGraw's "Live Like You Were Dying" was named most inspiring video of the year.
Toby Keith's "Whiskey Girl" won in the category of hottest video.
As previously announced, Loretta Lynn was honored with the Johnny Cash Visionary Award on the show. Lynn was lauded live by Reba McEntire, Martina McBride and Wilson, and on tape by Wynonna, Faith Hill and others.
The evening's performers included Chesney, McEntire, Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson, Urban, Keith, Paisley and Big & Rich. Wilson performed with Heart. And following a long absence from the country music scene, Trisha Yearwood made a surprise appearance performing her upcoming single, "Georgia Rain."
