Ahead of the 2024 CMT Awards live show, Scotty McCreery took home an early win for the CMT Digital-First Performance.

Spawning from his rendition of his hit single, 'It Matters To Her', on CMT Stages, this marks the American Idol alum's second-ever CMT Award. His first came in 2012 when his sophomore single, 'The Trouble with Girls', was awarded Breakthrough Video of the Year.

Joining from Zoom, McCreery accepted the award from Raleigh, North Carolina, gushing about his wife and mentioning his excitement for his upcoming induction to the Grand Ole Opry on April 20.

A beloved specialty award, McCreery won out over a smattering of top contenders, including Chase Rice's 'Goodnight Nancy' (from CMT Studio Sessions), Dylan Scott's 'Don’t Close Your Eyes (Keith Whitley Cover)' (from CMT Digital Campfire Sessions), Megan Moroney's 'I’m Not Pretty' (from CMT Digital Campfire Sessions), Nate Smith's 'Whiskey On You' (from CMT Studio Sessions), Stephen Wilson Jr.'s 'Year to Be Young 1994' (from CMT Studio Sessions) and The Castellows' 'I Know It Will Never End' (from CMT Studio Sessions).

The Digital-First category is always an exciting award, seeing Jelly Roll take home his first-ever trophy in 2023 for his evocative ‘Son Of A Sinner’ performance from CMT All Access.

During the star-studded evening, the 2024 CMT Awards enjoyed captivating performances from Kelsea Ballerini, who did double duty as the night's sole host, as well as Parker McCollum & Brittney Spencer, Trisha Yearwood, Bailey Zimmerman and more.
