Miranda Lambert takes home 4 ACM Awards

LAS VEGAS, NV (April 7, 2013) – Winners have been announced for
the 48th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, a star-studded ceremony
broadcast LIVE tonight on the CBS Television Network from the MGM Grand
Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Fans named Luke Bryan, Entertainer of the
Year, the evening’s biggest honor and his first win in that category.
This year marked a record breaking year with 1.1 million fans casting
their vote for Entertainer of the Year and New Artist of the Year
categories, combined.

Bryan co-hosted the ACM Awards for the first time ever tonight with
Blake Shelton. Prior to the telecast, Bryan won for Vocal Event of the
Year with Jason Aldean and Eric Church, for “The Only Way I Know,” a
trophy he accepted on the GAC live red carpet pre-show. The Entertainer
of the Year Award and Vocal Event of the Year mark his fourth ACM Award
wins. He previously won in 2009 for both New Solo Vocalist of the Year
and for New Artist of the Year.

Miranda Lambert won for the fourth consecutive year as Female
Vocalist of the Year and she also took the prize for Single Record of
the Year as artist, and Song of the Year, as artist and composer, for
“Over You,” an award she shares with husband and co-composer Blake
Shelton. She is the leading winner of the night, with a total of four
trophies in three categories. She joins Reba and Loretta Lynn as the
only other artists to win Female Vocalist of the Year four or more
times.

Jason Aldean won Male Vocalist of the Year, his first win in the
category. Aldean also won for Vocal Event of the Year, with Luke Bryan
and Eric Church, for “The Only Way I Know.” This is his second
consecutive win in that category; he won last year with Kelly Clarkson
for “Don’t You Wanna Stay.” In 2005, he won for New Male Vocalist of
the Year.

Little Big Town won Vocal Group of the Year and, prior to the
telecast, they were also awarded the trophy for Video of the Year for
“Tornado.” This is their first win in both categories. In 2006, they
won for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year.

Thompson Square won Vocal Duo of the Year, their second consecutive ACM Award win in that category.

Eric Church won Album of the Year for Chief. He also won for Vocal
Event of the Year, with Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, for “The Only Way I
Know.” This is his first win in both categories, and his third ACM
Award overall. He won for New Solo Vocalist of the Year in 2010.

Artists Florida Georgia Line received their first time Academy of
Country Music Award tonight for New Artist of the Year Presented by
Kohl’s Department Stores, a fan-voted category. They previously won in
the New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year category, giving them a total of
two wins for this year.

Tonight, the Academy of Country Music sold-out two of the largest
