Country Music Awards Anoint Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert

The 47th Academy of Country Music Awards took the stage in Vegas and offered plenty of drama, musical performances, and even some rock, with surprise appearances by U2’s Bono and the rock group KISS.

Taylor Swift took home her second consecutive entertainer of the year award, while Miranda Lambert won female vocalist and album of the year with Four the Record, beating out Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, and Eric Church.

Lambert’s husband Blake Shelton, who co-hosted the evening with country-loved Reba McEntire, won his first male vocalist award. KISS presented Lady Antebellum with their award for vocal group while Bono introduced Dierks Bentley’s performance of “Home.”

But the biggest winners of the night may have been Christina Davidson and Frank Tucci, who were married during the evening’s festivities to the tuneful voices of Martina McBride and Train’s Pat Monahan. We thought country music was supposed to be about marriages going wrong—but hey, good luck newlyweds!
