Carrie Underwood makes history at ACMs

Carrie Underwood has become the first woman to win the “Entertainer Of The Year” prize at the “Academy Of Country Music Awards” twice.

The former American Idol star scooped the honour, voted for by nearly half a million fans, at the 45th annual ceremony in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, April 18. She also received the “Triple Crown Award” in honour of her previous wins as “Entertainer Of The Year”, “New Female Vocalist” and “Female Vocalist”.

Another of the night’s big winners were Lady Antebellum, who scooped three gongs including “Song Of The Year”, “Single Of The Year” & “Vocal Group”.

Miranda Lambert also took home three prizes:  for “Female Vocalist”, “Album Of The Year” & “Video Of The Year”.

Other winners included Luke Bryan for “New Artist” , Brad Paisley for “Male Vocalist” & Brooks & Dunn for “Top Vocal Duo”.

Montgomery Gentry were honoured with the 9th annual ACM Home Depot Humanitarian Award. The ceremony was hosted by Reba McEntire.

The Academy of Country Music (ACM) was founded in 1964 in Los Angeles, California as the Country & Western Music Academy. Whereas the Country Music Association founded in 1958 was based in Nashville, the Academy sought to promote country music in the western states. Among those involved in the founding was West Coast singer, songwriter, and actor Eddie Dean. As such, its early membership was largely composed of those country performers based in the west. This is evidenced by the early awards shows being dominated by Bakersfield artists Buck and Bonnie Owens, and Merle Haggard. At the first ceremony held in 1965, Buck Owens won for Top Male Vocalist and Bonnie Owens won for Top Female Vocalist. Haggard was named Top New Male Vocalist, Kaye Adams was named Top New Female Vocalist and Buck Owens’s band, The Buckaroos, were named Band Of The Year.
