Group/Duo of the Year
Natalie, Emily and Martie continue to set high-water marks. Their Fly album soared past eight million in sales, and their tour was one of the highest-grossing of last year. The Chicks also grabbed the top CMA Award of 2000, Entertainer of the Year, and capped off their amazing year with a network television special that scored spectacular viewer ratings.
CMT Music Video of the Year
Director: Evan Bernard
The Chicks and an all-star supporting case - including NYPD Blue's Dennis Franz as the loutish Earl - frolicked through this comic tale of sweet revenge. The video took a controversial subject - domestic abuse - and used burlesque humor to deliver a serious message.
