The 47th Annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, which was hosted by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, has just ended. Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert dominated the full winner list by bagging two kudos each.
Jason took home Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year, thanks to his crossover collaboration with pop singer Kelly Clarkson. Meanwhile, Miranda got Album of the Year for her latest studio effort "Four the Record", and was crowned Female Vocalist of the Year.
Though Jason and Lambert received the most gongs, it was Taylor Swift who grabbed the top honor, Entertainer of the Year. This marked her win in the category for second year in a row. During her acceptance speech, she gave shout-outs to fellow nominees and her cancer-stricken fan who missed show due to his medical condition.
Last year, the "Safe & Sound" crooner won the coveted award over Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. This time around, she pushed aside Kenny Chesney and Blake Shelton in addition to beating Jason and Brad once again.
Other 2012 ACM winners are Blake Shelton (Male Vocalist of the Year), Lady Antebellum (Vocal Group of the Year), Scotty McCreery (New Artist of the Year), and Toby Keith (Video of the Year).
