(Newser) – Once again, Carrie Underwood proved herself to be country music’s darling at last night’s CMT Awards. The former American Idol won the top prize, video of the year, and was the only artist to win more than one prize—she also claimed CMT performance of the year. Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, and Lady Antebellum also won top prizes at the fan-voted awards, the AP reports.

After winning male video of the year, Urban sent his “deepest love” to those living near the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico—then went on to duet with John Mayer on stage. Another notable performance: Hank Williams Jr., Trace Adkins, Martina McBride, and more joining host Kid Rock for a medley of Rock’s hit songs, including, of course, “Cowboy.” For the complete list of winners (which, shockingly, does not include Taylor Swift), click here.
