The former Idol champ was the big winner of the night!
Taylor Swift is so last year… at least as far as the CMT Awards are concerned. The country cutie left Nashville empty-handed June 9, while Carrie Underwood took home two of the night’s biggest awards — Video of the Year for “Cowboy Casanova” and CMT Performance of the Year. I’m sure you country fans remember that Taylor was last year’s big winner, with Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year. Oh, what a difference a year makes.
But maybe Taylor should be glad she didn’t an award. No award means no getting up on stage… which means there’s no chance of another repeat episode from a Kanye West copycat.
Here’s a list of the other big winners from last night’s show:
- Duo Video of the Year: Brooks & Dunn‘s “Indian Summer”
- Group Video of the Year: Lady Antebellum‘s “Need You Now”
- Male Video of the Year: Keith Urban‘s “‘Til Summer Comes Around”
- Female Video of the Year: Miranda Lambert‘s “White Liar”
- Collaborative Video of the Year: Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins‘ “Hillbilly Bone”
- USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year: Luke Bryan‘s “Do I”
- Video Director of the Year: Shaun Silva
- Nationwide is On Your Side Award: Chris Young
