Keith Urban took home the top prize of Entertainer of the Year at last night’s ACM Awards and he posted a video to his social channels to share his gratitude.

Backstage after the win, Keith told press, “I’ve been nominated nine times, so at some point I come to terms and accept that the nomination is the award. I don’t know how things go that way sometimes, but I love what I get to do and I put everything into it, but I know all the others do too. It’s just…thank you, God, really.”

He also took to Instagram last night posting a video of him holding the card that read his name and thanked fans. Even his wife Nicole Kidman said in the video, “Country music has been so good to my husband, so good to me. We are so grateful we love you so much.”
