Nashville – Singer Miranda Lambert won four Country Music Association Awards yesterday, including her fifth consecutive female vocalist of the year award, and Luke Bryan took home the night’s top honour as entertainer of the year

Lambert (30) who led all nominees with nine nods, picked up CMA Awards for album of the year for Platinum, single of the year for the wistful Automatic as well as sharing the musical event of the year award with Aussie singer Keith Urban for We Were Us.

“I turned 30 last year and I felt like I need to sing about new stuff and I can’t thank you enough,” Lambert said while accepting the album of the year award.

“This is really special to me,” the Texan said.


The 48th annual CMA awards show, which competes with the springtime’s Academy of Country Music Awards for prestige and TV audience, is one of the top promotional events on the country music calendar.

It was Bryan’s first win as entertainer of the year.

Blake Shelton, Lambert’s husband, also won his fifth consecutive male vocalist of the year award.

Kacey Musgraves’ Follow Your Arrow won the songwriters’ award song of the year. She shared the award with fellow songwriters Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally.


Dierks Bentley, who scored the second-most nominations with five, won best music video for his hit Drunk on a Plane.

Florida Georgia Line won vocal duo of the year, and Little Big Town took home the glass CMA award for vocal group of the year.

Brett Eldredge (28) won new artist of the year on the back of his hits Don’t Ya and Beat of the Music.
