Carrie Underwood Wins ACM Entertainer of the Year
LAS VEGAS -- Carrie Underwood made history
at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, becoming the first woman to win entertainer of the year twice.
Underwood won the show's top honor last year. This year, she beat out Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, the Zac Brown Band, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, George Strait and Keith Urban.
"I think I just got makeup all over Brad Paisley," an excited Underwood said as she went onstage to accept her trophy. "Thank you, God, praise the Lord."
Underwood also was recognized earlier in the evening with special trophy for "triple crown" of ACM wins -- entertainer of the year, top female vocalist and top newcomer -- in the course of her career.
CN: Congratulations, Carrie!!!
