Carrie Underwood took home two CMT Music Awards on Monday night (April 11), upping her total career wins to 25 (the most by any artist). Underwood shared Video of the Year (her record-extending 10th time winning the evening's top prize) and Collaborative Video of the Year with "If I Didn't Love You" duet partner Jason Aldean.

Musical entertainment ranged from a stunning performance at Nashville's Municipal Auditorium by Jimmie Allen plus Little Big Town and Monica ("Pray") to off-site memories created by the reunited Judds ("Love Can Build a Bridge").

"Fortunately, she is asymptomatic and remains excited to co-host the show (remotely)," a rep for CMT explained (quote via Variety). "Kelsea's good friend Kane Brown -- who co-hosted with her last year -- has graciously agreed to step in alongside Anthony Mackie. The three of them have lots of surprises up their sleeves and fans can look forward to an epic show."

Mackie is best known for playing Captain America's pal Sam Wilson (The Falcon) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as well as his recent Disney+ series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. This will be Ballerini's second consecutive year hosting the CMT Music Awards and Mackie's first time. Last year he presented the Video of the Year award to Carrie Underwood and John Legend for "Hallelujah."

"We couldn't pass up the opportunity to pair one of the biggest names in country music with one of the world's most electrifying superheroes to host our biggest CMT Music Awards ever," shared Margaret Comeaux, John Hamlin and Leslie Fram, Executive Producers, CMT Music Awards, said in March. "Kelsea and Anthony are each wildly successful in their own right and combined, bring mega star power that transcends the worlds of music, film and pop culture with a supersized fan base. We know this dynamic duo is the perfect pairing to bring our show to the next level as we reach our largest global audience ever Live on CBS."
