Thomas Rhett was announced as the 2020 ACM Music Video of the Year winner with his heartfelt video for "Remember You Young."

He'll look to keep the winning streak going on Wednesday as he's also nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Album of the Year, as both the artist and a producer.

Miranda Lambert, along with Maren MorrisAshley McBrydeTenille TownesCaylee Hammack and Elle King, took home Music Event of the Year for their collaborative performance of "Fooled Around and Fell in Love."

This is Lambert's 35th career ACM win, making her the most-awarded artist of all time at the annual awards show.

The original song was written and released by Elvin Bishop back in the mid-1970s, but was covered by Lambert and company last year to kick off their 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour.

This year's awards show will feature performances from three separate venues across Nashville: the Grand Ole Opry House, the Bluebird Cafe and the Ryman Auditorium. Watch Wednesday night as Keith Urban hosts the ACM Awards on CBS at 8PM ET.
