Perhaps they should change the “M” in CMA(Country Music Association) to Miranda. At last night’s 48th Annual edition of the CMA Awards show, Miranda stole the show, performing twice and winning four times including her fifth straight Female Vocalist of the Year. Her husband, Blake Shelton, followed suit also picking up his fifth straight victory in the Male Vocalist of the Year category.
As mentioned, Lambert took home four awards including Album of the Year for Platinum, Single of the Year for “Automatic” and Musical Event of the Year for her work on Keith Urban’s “We Were Us”. Vocal Group of the Year went to Little Big Town, while Florida Georgia Line captured their second straight Vocal Duo of the Year trophy. Brett Eldredge is the New Artist of the Year and Luke Bryan beat out Lambert, Shelton, George Strait and Keith Urban for the night’s top prize, Entertainer of the Year.
A night that will be remembered for it’s incredible performances also saw Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood return to the CMA Awards stage as presenters. Oh…and if you missed it, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-hosted for the seventh straight year! This may be the last year though…as Brad let slip that Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, are expecting a boy!
One last award to mention, Music Video of the Year went to Dierks Bentley for “Drunk on a Plane”! Check it out below!
