Keeping the entire performance very simplistic without anyone else on stage, all attention gave eyes to Urban as he gave everything up to the army of women he knows and loves.

Even as he was taking off his guitar, Twitter lit up with praise for Female and its lyrics, which Rolling Stone Country said is dedicated to the women in Urban's life and "the power they inherently hold yet are so often denied".

Later, Keith gets more serious by addressing rape culture, singing: "When somebody laughs and implies that she asked for it/Just "cause she was wearin" a skirt/Aw, is that how that works?" Urban, 50, recorded it on Halloween and wanted to release it as soon as possible, Billboard reports. It affected me not just as a husband but also as a father of two young girls, and a son. "Carrie you just destroyed me and I just want to say that more than any other year I've ever been a part of the CMAs, I feel truly like there's a family in this room tonight".

Stockdale said he was frustrated after wasting to make a ride later in the programme and vowed that it wouldn't happen again. Concerns about animal rights were also raised this week following Australia's premier horse race, the Melbourne Cup.

According to a post on Galyon's Instagram, "Female" was written just three weeks ago.
