The winners at the 2017 CMA Awards included some big surprises.

Kelsea Ballerini joined Good Morning America host Lara Spencer during a special live broadcast from Nashville Wednesday morning (Nov. 8), and they announced the winners in the categories of Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year.

Brothers Osborne took home Music Video of the Year for their clever video for “It Ain’t My Fault,” the fourth single from Pawn Shop. They beat out videos from Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town and Thomas Rhett with Maren Morris, scoring a pretty big upset.

Glen Campbell took home Musical Event of the Year posthumously along with fellow country legend Willie Nelson. The two collaborated on a new rendition of Nelson’s classic “Funny How Time Slips Away” for Campbell’s final album, Adios.

The rest of the 2017 CMA Awards were awarded during the live broadcast on Wednesday night. Lambert, LBT, Urban, Jon Pardi, Chris Stapleton and even Taylor Swift took home top awards, with Garth Brooks once again claiming Entertainer of the Year.
