Kenny Chesney Wins Entertainer Of The Year - ACM Awards 2007

The 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony was held Sunday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas. Known to be the biggest event in country music, the ACM Awards was attended by some of the greatest stars of the entertainment industry.

Among the night’s biggest winners were Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson - the three won two awards each.

Miranda Lambert won her third Album of the Year award for “Four the Record” Sunday night and also snagged the award for the top Female Vocalist of the Year. The win placed her with the country music greats, Alabama and George Strait. Meanwhile, her husband, Blake Shelton, won Male Vocalist of the Year.

"I own every record in this category and I've been listening and listening, thinking I'm not going to get it," said Lambert, according to a news report on HuffingtonPost.com. "Every record is amazing, and I'm so thrilled. I will never take this trophy for granted. My albums are my babies. It's what makes me wake up in the mornings."

Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson both grabbed two awards - Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for their duet, "Don't You Wanna Stay".

Kenny Chesney dominated the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night with nine nominations – the most of any artist. The country crooner had a nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year nomination for "Hemingway's Whiskey”. He also received double nods for single record of the year and vocal event of the year as artist and producer on "You and Tequila".

Taylor Swift took home her second consecutive Entertainer of the Year award at the ACM Awards on Sunday night. The 22-year-old singer stole the title from Kenny Chesney, who had won the award four times since 2004.

"I'm so happy about this," Swift said after winning the fan-voted award, according to the same report on HuffingtonPost.com. "I want to say to my fellow nominees in this category I respect you so much and I love you."

Among the first-time nominees were Grace Potter with three, Aaron Lewis with two, and Thompson Square and Love and Theft with single nominations.

Hosts for the night were Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire for the second time in a row. They entertained the audience with endless jokes.

The awards ceremony also featured performances by Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Sara Evans.

The 2012 ACM Awards ceremony was broadcast by CBS.
