(Newser) – Blockbuster singer Taylor Swift hit all the right notes again to win the Academy of Country Music Awards' entertainer of the year nod for the second time running. "To my fellow nominees, I respect you so much and I love you," said the 22-year-old star, who was the only woman nominated in the category. "To the fans for voting, thank you. This is exciting." Miranda Lambert snagged awards for top female vocalist and album of the year for Four the Record. "I own every record in this category and I've been listening and listening, thinking: Man, I'm not going to get it," she said. Hubby Blake Shelton won top male vocalist honors. Lady Antebellum grabbed the vocal group of the year award, and the Eli Young Band's "Crazy Girl" walked away with song of the year. (Read more Taylor Swift stories.)
