The award highlights the best video from an artist’s major breakthrough album and can be awarded to a male, female, group or duo. In field jam-packed with dynamite videos, seven emerged as nominees.

While the Breakthrough Video of the Year award isn’t considered the biggest of the night, it can certainly be used as a stepping stone for new artists. Past winners include Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Zac Brown Band, and Florida Georgia Line, who have all gone on to become country music superstars.
