Blake Shelton Named CMA's Entertainer of the Year; Blake & Miranda Three-Peat for Male & Female Vocalist

Michael Loccisano/WireImage(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- It was a Blake & Miranda kinda night at the 46th Annual Country Music Association Awards, handed out in Nashville on Thursday night and airing live on ABC.  Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, the reigning King and Queen of Country music, swept the boards, taking home awards in four categories overall, including the big one: Entertainer of the Year, which went to Blake.

Accepting the trophy, an incredulous Blake said, "I'm not sure how this happened, but I freakin' love it!"  He added that when he moved to Nashville in '94, he had only two goals: to get a gold record and join the Grand Ole Opry.  Entertainer of the Year, he said, never crossed his mind.  Noting that he's not been on the road as much due to his commitments to The Voice, Blake said he tries to represent country music as best he can, adding, "I love country music more than anybody in this room!"

In addition, Blake and Miranda became the first married couple ever to win the CMA award for Song of the Year: they took home the trophy for co-writing Miranda's hit "Over You," inspired by the death of Blake's brother in a car crash.  In an emotional acceptance speech, Blake said that years ago, his father had advised him to write about the loss of his brother.  "I lost my dad in January," he continued. "It's amazing that tonight, after he's gone, he's still right."  Miranda broke down in tears at the podium.

Finally, Blake and Miranda both three-peated in the Male and Female Vocalist categories.  Revealing that he'd had a few drinks, the Voice coach expressed surprise at the win, saying that he expected Jason Aldean or Luke Bryan to take it.  Miranda, too, seemed surprised, noting that she wasn't sure she "deserved" the award, adding, "But I'll take it!"  Miranda also took a lot of time acknowledging her fellow nominees: Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood.

In the other categories, it was a night of firsts, with Little Big Town, Eric Church, Thompson Square and Hunter Hayes all taking home their first-ever trophies.

Nobody was more excited than Little Big Town, who were the first winners of the night: Single of the Year for "Pontoon."  Referring to a bit at the opening of the show where Brad Paisley told his co-host Carrie Underwood the true meaning of a certain term used in that song, Karen Fairchild came to the podium and said, "Oh my stars, Brad Paisley! You just told my mama what 'motorboating' means!"  When they won again, for Vocal Group of the Year, they literally jumped up and down at the podium and thanked Jesus numerous times. Kimberly Schlapman said, "Y'all, this has been a 13-year journey!"

Eric Church won Album of the Year for Chief, and he told the crowd, "I spent a lot of my career wondering where I fit in...too country, too rock...I want to thank y'all for giving me somewhere to hang my hat."  He did not remove his hat, or his sunglasses, during his acceptance speech.  Thompson Square was named Vocal Duo of the Year, breaking Sugarland's five-year lock on the category.  Shawna Thompson said she'd been preparing to accept a CMA Award since she was a kid, "practicing in the kitchen holding with one of my meemaw's Mason jars."  A shocked Hunter Hayes was named New Artist of the Year.

Co-hosts Brad and Carrie drew plenty of laughs with their comedy bits, including a song that turned Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger" into "Moves Like Haggard," poking fun at all the hell that country artists raise, including Randy Travis' recent escapades.  They also poked gentle fun at Taylor Swift's brief romance with Conor Kennedy, but since the camera didn't cut to Taylor, we don't know if she was amused.  The pregnancy of Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles pregnancy was also fodder for various jokes, including an announcement by Brad that they were going to induce labor right there, with "Dr." Little Jimmy Dickens overseeing everything.  And the "motorboating" references also came fast and furious.

As host and performer, Carrie got to where somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 different outfits, and looked fabulous in each one.  It's up to the viewers to decide if her decision to sing her song "Blown Away" was appropriate in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, especially since she and Brad spent a lot of time sending their love out to to the hurricane's victims and requesting donations.  Brad even performed a bit of Alicia Keys' "Empire State of Mind" as a tribute to folks in New York, and threw in a New Jersey shout-out as well.

Here's a rundown of who performed what on the show:

Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Eric Church – “The Only Way I Know”
Tim McGraw – “One of Those Nights”
Miranda Lambert – “Fastest Girl in Town”
Zac Brown Band – “Goodbye in Her Eyes”

American Music Awards: Taylor Swift Named Artist of the Year

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Less than two weeks after scoring the top prize at the Country Music Association Awards, Taylor Swift took home the biggest honor -- artist of the year -- at the American Music Awards, which aired live on ABC Sunday night.

The award was Swift's third of the evening -- she had previously won favorite country female artist and favorite country album -- but she appeared shocked when her name was called for the big prize.

"This is the craziest thing that has ever happened to me!" Swift said.  "Fans, please never change.  I can't believe this is happening to me!"

Adele was also a three-time winner on Sunday night's telecast, but two of her awards -- favorite adult contemporary artist and favorite pop/rock female artist -- weren't given out on camera.  On camera, she won favorite pop/rock album for 21, but she wasn't present to accept the award, since she's recovering from vocal cord surgery.

Nicki Minaj picked up two awards, for favorite rap/hip-hop artist and favorite rap/hip-hop album for Pink Friday, and also had the honor of opening the show.

"This one could actually make me cry," she said, accepting her win for favorite rap/hip-hop album.  "I can't believe this is happening."

Other winners included Rihanna and Beyonce -- both of whom accepted their awards via video message, since they weren't there -- plus Lady Antebellum, Maroon 5, Bruno Mars and Hot Chelle Rae, who was named Sprint New Artist of the Year.  In addition, Katy Perry was given a special award of achievement for being the first woman ever to score five number one hits from a single album.  The only other artist who had ever done that was Michael Jackson.

However, the American Music Awards was really all about the live performances -- 17 in all, including over half a dozen artist collaborations.

The closing number was a performance by LMFAO, who turned the Nokia L.A. Live Theatre into a giant dance club with a medley of "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It" that featured guest appearances by Justin Bieber and David Hasselhoff, numerous men ripping off their pants, showers of confetti and a giant inflatable zebra.

CMA Awards 2011 Winners: Taylor Swift Named Entertainer of the Year

Jason Kempin/Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Taylor Swift was named Entertainer of the Year for the second time Wednesday night at the 45th annual CMA Awards, which aired live from Nashville, Tenn., on ABC.

Swift now joins Barbara Mandrell as the only other female artist in CMA history ever to be named Entertainer of the Year twice.

"I'm so happy right now!," gushed Swift from the podium.  "This is thanks to all the fans who filled up those stadiums and arenas all over the world this year."

The pop country star then proceeded to thank all the artists who've joined her onstage for her Speak Now tour, reading the names off her arm, where she'd scrawled them with a marker.  That list of names ranged from pop stars like Justin Bieber and Jason Mraz, to rappers like Nelly and T.I., to fellow country stars like Tim McGraw.

While Swift snagged the evening's most prestigious award, the night's big winner was The Band Perry, who scooped up three trophies, including New Artist of the Year, and both Song and Single of the Year for their smash hit "If I Die Young."  Accepting the Song of the Year trophy was Kimberly Perry, who wrote "If I Die Young."

"I truly believe that [the song] would've been written with or without me.  It just always felt like a song that was meant to be here," Perry said.

The night's other winners included country's current power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert.  The two, who wed earlier this year, each picked up their second straight CMA Male and Female Vocalist of the Year awards.

Jason Aldean scored two wins, picking up the Album of the Year award for My Kinda Party, and the Musical Event of the Year trophy for his duet with Kelly Clarkson, "Don't You Wanna Stay."  Sugarland took home their fifth win in the Vocal Duo category, and dedicated it to their fans, especially the "good folks of Indiana."  Over the summer a number of fans were killed when the group's stage collapsed during the Indiana State Fair due to high winds.

Lady Antebellum, meanwhile, scored their third straight win as Vocal Group of the Year.

Here's a list of winners at the 45th Annual Country Music Association Awards:

-- Entertainer of the Year: Taylor Swift
-- Female Vocalist of the Year: Miranda Lambert
-- Male Vocalist of the Year: Blake Shelton
-- New Artist of the Year: The Band Perry
-- Vocal Group of the Year: Lady Antebellum
-- Single of the Year: "If I Die Young," The Band Perry
-- Album of the Year: My Kinda Party, Jason Aldean
-- Song of the Year: "If I Die Young," The Band Perry
-- Vocal Duo of the Year: Sugarland
-- Musical Event of the Year: "Don't You Wanna Stay," Jason Aldean w/Kelly Clarkson
-- Music Video of the Year: "You and Tequila," Kenny Chesney w/Grace Potter
-- Musician of the Year: Mac McAnally
