Miranda Lambert rakes up 3 CMA Awards & Brad Paisley takes home the biggie!

Top CMA Awards nominee Miranda Lambert, took home three trophies; including Female Vocalist, Album for Revolution and Music Video of the Year for “The House That Built Me” at the 44th Annual CMA Awards Wednesday night. The Awards were the first in the country cutie’s career!

I’m sure it was a fun night in Miranda’s house as her fiancé Blake Shelton picked up his first career CMA Awards, winning Male Vocalist and Musical Event of the Year for “Hillbilly Bone.”

Awards co-host Brad Paisley took home the biggie for Entertainer of the Year. Brad gave an emotional acceptance speech, with tears of joy streaming down his face.

Lady Antebellum (pictured backstage) won their second consecutive Single of the Year Award for their hit “Need You Now” and won their second Vocal Group of the Year Award.

Sugarland (pictured backstage) picked up their fourth Vocal Duo of the Year Award.

Actress Sissy Spacek, who portrayed Loretta Lynn in “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” made a surprise appearance to celebrate the Country Music Hall of Fame member. Lambert and Sheryl Crow offered a rendition of the song “Coal Miner’s Daughter” in honor of Loretta Lynn’s 50th anniversary as a Country Music recording artist. Loretta joined Miranda and Sheryl onstage for the last verse of the song before presenting the Female Vocalist of the Year Award with Spacek.

Another highlight of the evening was when Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow made her Country singing debut, knocking “Country Strong” out of the park.

The 44th Annual CMA Awards” was hosted for the third time by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on ABC.
