At last night's Academy of Country Music Awards, county star Carrie Underwood made history by being the first woman to win the Entertainer of the Year Award two years in a row. (Before that, it had been nearly a decade since any woman had even won the award.)


Carrie might have won the biggest award of the night, but trio Lady Antebellum picked up the most: Top Vocal Group, Single of the Year, and Song of the Year ("Need You Now").

Taylor Swift, shockingly, didn't win any awards; however, her performance was a heck of a lot better than the one she did at the Grammys.

Brooks & Dunn performed for the last time as a duo (*sniff sniff*), singing "My Maria," which happens to be my favorite song by them, so I was feeling all bittersweet about it. It's going to be weird not having those two together in country music.

Here's the full list of winners:

  • Entertainer of the Year: Carrie Underwood
  • Top Male Vocalist: Brad Paisley
  • Top Female Vocalist: Miranda Lambert
  • Top Vocal Group: Lady Antebellum
  • Top Vocal Duo: Brooks & Dunn
  • Top New Artist: Luke Bryan
  • Top New Solo Vocalist: Luke Bryan
  • Top New Vocal Duo: Joey + Rory
  • Top New Vocal Group: Gloriana
  • Single Record of the Year: Lady Antebellum, "Need You Now"
  • Top Album of the Year: Miranda Lambert, Revolution
  • Song of the Year: Lady Antebellum, "Need You Now"
