Carrie Underwood adds another CMT trophy by scoring Video of the Year award for her 'Cowboy Casanova' clip.
After a live performance from Zac Brown Band who delivered a thoughtful song "Free", "Dancing with the Stars" stars Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy came to the stage of Bridgestone Arena. The two was there to announce the winner of Male Video of the Year.
Keith Urban was revealed as the champ. He won over Jason Aldean, Billy Currington, Toby Keith and Tim McGraw. In addition to thanking those who have supported him, this country music singer also sent his prayers to the people in the Gulf of Mexico "who are going through such an insane time right" due to BP oil spill.
Soon after Keith wrapped his speech, Kara DioGuardi introduced a performance from Carrie Underwood, the "American Idol" alum who now has become an "American Icon". The singer who won the fourth season of the singing competition sang her single "Undo It" during the Wednesday event.
The next country music singer who took the stage was LeAnn Rimes. Collaborating with Luke Wilson, she announced Miranda Lambert as the recipient of Female Video of the Year. "My first buckle, this rocks!" she said on stage. "Thanks to the fan, this is awesome. -- One more thing: Let's just hope my next wedding doesn't end up like that one."
Closing the June 9 celebration was the announcement of Video of the Year winner. And, the lucky one who brought home the top honor was Carrie. She beat down Taylor Swift, Miranda, Lady Antebellum and Toby Keith. "WOW! Awesome fans, awesome, awesome, amazing, awesome, awesome," she said during the acceptance speech regarding the second trophy she received at the 2010 CMT Awards.
