Backstage at the 50th annual CMA Awards, Garth Brooks admitted he thought his win for entertainer of the year in 1998 would be his last.

“I kind of went numb after they called my name,” he said backstage at Wednesday’s (Nov. 2) CMA Awards. “When we left, I never thought I’d get to come back. And then you come back and you never think you’re going to win one of these again.”

Brooks now holds the record as having the most wins for entertainer of the year in the organization’s history with five.
