His wife, Miranda Lambert, didn't go home empty handed - she was awarded with the Female Artist Of The Year crown.

Luke Bryan, who dominated the prizegiving last year (12), received three awards including Artist of the Year: Male, Touring Artist, and the coveted Artist of the Year honour, bringing his total to a record-breaking 12 awards, more than any other musician in the ceremony's history.

Lady Antebellum reclaimed its status as Group Of The Year after winning the title in 2012, and former American Idol winner Scotty MCCreery was hailed the Breakthrough Artist Of The Year.

Throughout the night, special awards were also handed out, as Dwight Yoakam presented Brad Paisley with the Video Visionary Award and Taylor Swift received the first-ever Worldwide Artist Award from Olivia Newton-John.

The fourth annual American Country Awards, which aired live from Las Vegas, was hosted by Trace Adkins and American Nascar driver Danica Patrick, and featured performances from Sheryl Crow, Darius Rucker, and LeAnn Rimes, who paid tribute to music legend Patsy Cline.
