Backstage after the awards show, Underwood couldn't help but gush over her hubby as well as Urban and Kidman, who recently posted an adorable video of themselves lip syncing to Urban's song "The Fighter."

"I was like, 'How do you look that beautiful, no makeup?'" she told ET's Sophie Schillaci. "It was like they were going to the grocery store or something, popped in the car and said 'Let's sing the song.' I'm jealous."

Meanwhile, Thomas Rhett -- who snagged Male Video of the Year for "Die a Happy Man" -- brought his lovely wife, Lauren Gregory. Rhett dished to ET about how his better half helps him get ready for awards shows. "Usually my stylist will pull about 10 different suits and she'll pick her favorite and that's what I'll wear," he admitted.
