The 'American Idol' alumna accepts the award just after she presents a tribute to Oklahoma Tornado victims with her performance of 'See You Again'.
Carrie Underwood stole the show towards the end of the 2013 CMT Awards with her beautiful rendition of "See You Again" and her Video of the Year win. After delivering the musical tribute dedicated to the victims of the recent tornadoes that had devastated Oklahoma, she returned to the stage to accept the most coveted prize at the event.
Still dressed in a pale pink dress with sparkly details which she wore during the performance, she received the award from presenters Sheryl Crow and Kenny Rogers. The 30-year-old singer gave a shoutout to her husband Mike Fisher who was having his birthday, saying, "I got you a present."
Underwood won the Video of the Year award for "Blown Away" clip. She edged out the likes of Brad Paisley, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw for the title.
Winning big in term of number were Florida Georgia Line and Miranda Lambert who took home two each. The country music duo, who closed the show with their performance of "Cruise", was honored with Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year for the song's clip.
