Jordan Strauss/WireImage(LAS VEGAS) -- It was ladies night at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, held Sunday night in Las Vegas, as the girls -- plus Lady Antebellum -- walked off with all the top prizes.

Taylor Swift captured the ACM's Entertainer of the Year top trophy for the very first time, and the surprised superstar said at the podium, "This is the first time that I've ever won this, and I am just losing my mind!"
