Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town Lasso Top Honors at Academy of Country Music Awards

Blake Shelton ACM Awards

The world of country came together for one of several nights honoring their top talent for the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards. Hosted by The Voice‘s Blake Shelton and the two-first-named Luke Bryan, the night belonged to Shelton’s wife, Miranda Lambert, and group Little Big Town. Taking home trophies for Female Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, and Single Record of the Year, Lambert proved herself the toast of Nashville with her track “Only You.”

Other big winners included Eric Church and Jason Aldean, and featured performances by an increasingly-varied roster of artists from across the spectrum — including John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, and Kelly Clarkson. Also came the announcement that the Artist of the Decade award would be renamed to honor the show’s former producer, Dick Clark.
