ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban followed the "Golden Road" to the triple crown

ACM Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban followed the "Golden Road" to the triple crown

Francis Specker/CBSKeith Urban’s win as Entertainer of the Year at Sunday’s Academy of Country Music Awards officially makes him a triple-crown winner.

While you may be familiar with that phrase when it comes to horse racing, at the ACMs, it means that you won the New Artist trophy, followed that up by taking home the Male Artist trophy or its equivalent, and then went on to win the Entertainer of the Year prize.

The Aussie superstar took home the New Male Artist of the Year honor in 2000, before being named Male Artist four years later. Keith won Entertainer on Sunday after his ninth nomination in the category.  

The previous, three-time Entertainer of the Year, Jason Aldean, is a triple-crown winner as well. Sunday, he added a fourth jewel to his crown by being named Artist of the Decade.
