Combs and Bridges, both 29, won for their rendition of his 2017 single “Beautiful Crazy” from CMT Crossroads. The win was Bridges’ first CMT Award.

He previously won the Grammy for best traditional R&B performance of “Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand” in 2018.

Combs’ love song — which spent seven straight weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart — was inspired by his fiancée Nicole Hocking.
