Carrie Underwood Wins Big at CMT Music Awards
Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Carrie Underwood took home two awards at this year's CMT Music Awards, which were held in Nashville earlier.
The American Idol winner took home the Video of the Year award for her single "Cowboy Casanova," which was determined via popular vote. She also took home the CMT Performance of the Year award for her performance of "Temporary Home" on the network.
Surprisingly, however, Carrie didn't win the Female Video of the Year award: that went to Miranda Lambert for "White Liar."
Recent critical darlings Lady Antebellum won Group Video of the Year for "Need You Now," while Brooks & Dunn -- who are ending their partnership later this year -- won the Duo Video of the Year award for "Indian Summer."
The ceremonies, which were hosted by Kid Rock, featured performances from Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, and a collaboration between Zac Brown Band and John Mayer. Hank Williams Jr. made a surprise appearance, as well as the Jersey Shore cast, and Saturday Night Live's Kenan Thompson, who spoofed Reba McIntyre before the real Reba came on
