The winners included some familiar names as the big winners of the night, with few surprises mixed in. The big winner of the night was George Strait who took home the Entertainer of the Year Award. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert won Male and Female Artists of the Year and Taylor Swift picked up a special award, the Pinnacle Award.
The Pinnacle Award has only been presented one other time, to Garth Brooks in 2005. This award is presented to artists who have achieved worldwide success and brought recognition to the country music genre.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was Kasey Musgraves winning New Artist of the Year. Musgraves is new on the scene, and has put in just a little more than a year's work on the country music radar.
Congratulations to all of the winners!
