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