The 47th annual CMA Awards don’t take place until Wednesday night (Nov. 6), but two winners in two categories have already been announced. The winners for Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year categories have been named. Actually, it’s one group of winners, since the same song and artists nabbed both wins!

Tim McGraw, along with Keith Urban and Taylor Swift, nabbed the 2013 CMAs Musical Event of the Year award for their song ‘Highway Don’t Care,’ which features Urban’s guitar work and Swift’s vocals. It’s a true powerhouse track, and it beat out Blake Shelton feat. Pistol Annies for ‘Boys ‘Round Here’ and Jason Aldean feat. Luke Bryan and Eric Church on ‘The Only Way I Know,’ among others. Competition was stiff, but McGraw and co. pulled out the win.

For the Music Video of the Year category, the song’s video — which explored the consequences of distracted driving and loss, among other things — also won, besting Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum and Shelton and the Annies again!

Congrats to McGraw, Urban and Swift on the wins for their landmark track. Tune in to Wednesday night’s live 2013 CMA Awards broadcast at 8PM ET on ABC to see the rest of the winners, the performances, the red carpet attire and more.
