Here is a sample of artists who have won eight or more times in a category at various awards shows.
Carrie Underwood won Video of the Year for the ninth time at the 2021 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night. She won the award this time for the video for “Hallelujah,” a collaboration with John Legend that appeared on his Christmas 2020 album, My present.
And that’s not the only category of the CMT Music Awards that Underwood has completely dominated. She has won the Female Video of the Year award eight times. (Do you feel like CMT viewers really like it?)
Underwood isn’t the first music star to have won so many times in a given category at an awards show that the category should almost be named in their honor. Here’s a healthy sample of other artists who have won eight or more times in a category at various awards shows, both EGOT-level and genre-specific. (In each case, these performers hold the record for the most wins in that category at this show.)
