Chris Stapleton and Lainey Wilson notched the most wins Thursday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards, with Stapleton taking home four trophies and Wilson collecting three, including Entertainer of the Year.

It’s Wilson’s first time winning that coveted prize, which the Academy notes qualifies her for the coveted ACM Triple Crown Award — which celebrates artists who have won New Female or Male Artist or Duo or Group of the Year, Female or Male Artist or Duo or Group of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. Wilson won New Female Artist at the 57th annual ceremony and took home Female Artist of the year last year — she also won Female Artist of the Year on Thursday, as well as Music Event of the Year alongside Jelly Roll for their track “Save Me.” She’s won a total of 10 ACM awards.

Stapleton meanwhile won Album of the Year for the eighth time — four times as an artist and four as a producer — the most of any artist in ACM history. He also won his fourth ACM Male Artist of the Year. He’s won a total of 20 ACM awards.

Other winners include Old Dominion for ACM Group of the Year, their seventh consecutive win, Megan Moroney, Nate Smith and Tigirlily Gold, who won in the three New Artist categories and Jordan Davis, who won Song of the Year for “Next Thing You Know.”
