Girls Run The (Country) World At CMT Awards

Last night proved to be a good night for the ladies of country music as they took home the top prizes at the CMT Awards.

Carrie Underwood walked away with her 10th CMT Award, this time winning the prestigious Video of the Year trophy for "Blown Away".

Power couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert also enjoyed a successful evening, winning the Male Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year prizes; him for "Sure Be Cool If You Did" and her for "Mama's Broken Heart". It was a double win for Lambert as "Over You" also got her the CMT Performance of the Year gong, and she declared she was "drinkin' for two" in her husband's absence from the event.

Newcomers Georgia Florida Line also emerged as double victors, winning both the Breakthrough Video of the Year and Duo Video of the Year prizes.

The entirely fan-voted awards were held at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and was hosted by multi platinum-selling country superstar Jason Aldean and Veronica Mars actress Kristen Bell (pictured above).

The evening's entertainment came courtesy of an array of big names including Keith Urban, Lenny Kravitz, Taylor Swift and somewhat surprisngly, rapper Nelly. But it was Carrie Underwood who stole the show with her moving rendition of "See You Again", which the singer dedicated to her recently tornado-stricken hometown of Oklahoma.

Here's a recap of nominees and winners from last night:
