Miranda Lambert big winner at 50th Academy of Country Music Awards

Who was the big winner at the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan?

Luke Bryan, who co-hosted the show won big and took home Entertainer of the Year. Miranda Lambert nabbed five awards.  Check out the list of winners and the video highlights of the show!

The show kicked off with a performance by Eric Church singing “Pledge Allegiance To The Hag” and Keith Urban’s powerhouse “Raise ‘Em Up”.

The first honor of the live broadcast went to George Strait, who accepted a Milestone Award after performing his new single, “Let It Go,” and the classic, “All My Ex’s Live in Texas.”

He was one of seven honorees of the 50th Anniversary Milestone Awards, which also went to Brooks, Lambert, Taylor Swift, Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn and Kenny Chesney.

Luke Bryan landed the fan-voted entertainer of the year winner, beating out Miranda Lambert,  Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line for the evening’s coveted honor. The award was presented by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

Luke Bryan won Entertainer of the Year:

Looking thrilled about the win, he said, “I’m up here with Steven Tyler, thank you! Thank you my wife, my kids at home…my fans, country radio….”

Luke Bryan performance:

Miranda Lambert took home lots of awards (as usual), including female vocalist of the year, song of the year for “Automatic” and album of the year for “Platinum.”

She even seemed surprised by all the wins, at one point saying, “I don’t even realize what’s happening tonight.”

Kelly Clarkson presented McEntire with her Milestone honor , which was fitting because Kelly is married to Reba’s stepson, Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly said, “I have the coolest mother-in-law, and you can all suck it,” Clarkson said before introducing Reba.

Christina Aguilera and Rascal Flatts:

Little Big Town performed their controversial song  “Girl Crush”

Taylor Swift’s mom, Andrea, who was recently diagnosed with cancer, presented her superstar daughter with the Milestone Award.

She spoke about being Swift’s closest companion while growing up — when she had only a few friends. Andrea also talked about Swift’s tendency to write songs about people she knows.

“To the fans — I know you love her as I love her. And for that, I thank you eternally,” Andrea said before Swift took the stage to accept the award. She took the opportunity to thank the country music community for embracing her new pop album, “1989.”

Here’s the list of nominees honored tonight at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The winners are noted in bold.
