The country music awards at the 2017 AMAs were mopped up by Keith Urban, with the Australian artist having to ask the help of his wife Nicole Kidman to carry some of them.
Urban took home gongs for ‘Favourite Country Male Artist’, ‘Favourite Country Album’ and ‘Favourite Country Song’, with 2017 album ‘Ripcord’ and single ‘Blue Ain’t Your Colour’  winning the latter two respectively.
While receiving his awards, Urban dedicated the wins to Kidman, as well as to their daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret.
The only person on the night to win more individual AMAs than Urban was Bruno Mars, who won a whopping seven awards.
Elsewhere on the night at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, Lady Gaga, P!nk, Diana Ross, Imagine Dragons and Shawn Mendes all performed, while P!nk also teamed up with Kelly Clarkson to cover R.E.M.’s classic ‘Everybody Hurts’ as a tribute to the first responders who risked their lives to assist people struck by the numerous disasters in America this year.
Urban had previously been nominated for ‘Favourite Country New Artist’ in 2001 and ‘Favourite Country Male Artist’ in 2006, before finally winning ‘Favourite Country Male Artist’ in 2009.
