Carrie Underwood - Carrie Underwood Triumphs At American Country Music Awards

Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean all won at the American Country Music Awards last night (05.12.11).

Jason triumphed on the night, winning six awards including Artist of the Year and Record of the Year for his track 'My Kinda Party'.

Collecting one of his later awards, he told the crowd: "This is getting a little ridiculous now. I don't know what else to say. It's been a crazy year!"

Carrie was the highest coring girl, taking home trophies for Female Artist of the Year, while her track 'Mama's Song' took home Single of the Year, Female Artist and Music Video, Female Artist.

Blake won both Music Video of the Year and Music Video, Male Artist for his track 'Who Are You When I'm Not Looking' which he dedicated to his father, Dick, who is in the hospital with pneumonia.

He told the audience: "I want to say 'hi' to my dad back home. He's been having a pretty rough couple of weeks. I know he's watching back at home and I love you, dad, and want to dedicate this to you."

He then appeared to get a little teary eyed as he performed 'God Gave Me You'.

Other award recipients on the evening included Lady Antebellum, who won Group of the Year for the second time running and Toby Keith, who was named artist of the decade.
