Luke Bryan won his first entertainer of the year trophy at the 48th Annual Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday night in Nashville. Miranda Lambert became the star of the night after winning awards in four categories.
Lambert, who was nominated in nine categories, received four awards, including album of the year for “Platinum.” The 30-year-old’s husband Blake Shelton was named the male vocalist of the year for the fifth consecutive time. Lambert also won the fifth consecutive female vocalist of the year.
"King of Country" George Strait, Lambert, Shelton and Keith Urban, were the other nominees for the entertainer of the year award.
"I hope I can have enough time to say everything that's on my mind," Bryan reportedly said while receiving the award. "I have some angels in heaven, my brother and sister are making this night possible for me."
Lambert, who also won the musical event of the year award, performed twice on stage, including a collaboration performance with Meghan Trainor, who made her CMA debut.
Other collaborative performances included Shelton’s song with Ashley Monroe; Strait and Eric Church’s performance on "Cowboys Like Us;" and The Doobie Brothers' performance with musical group Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes.
