The American Country Music Awards were held on Sunday in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban won the most awards, two and three respectively, whilst nominees and fan favourites Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton lost out on numerous awards each.

Miranda Lambert

Lambert was struggling to hold her awards at the American Country Music Awards on Sunday (6th April). The singer won three of the large trophies and posed somewhat awkwardly but happily in the press room. The 30-year-old took home the most awards after she won Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year alongside Keith Urban. Urban was a secretive runner up with two awards as, not only did he collaborate with Lambert for Vocal event, but he also featured (alongside Taylor Swift) in Tim Mcgraw's 'Highway Don't Care' which won Video of the Year.

Kate and Justin Moore

Justin Moore, who won the award for New Artist of the Year, posed with his pregnant wife and his award. Moore's wife Kate glowed with pride as she held her husband's award. It's certainly going to be a busy year for the couple who are expecting their third child this summer.

Kacey Musgraves
Kacey Musgraves' unusual dress did not blight her radiance as she held her award for Album of the Year.

Kacey Musgraves, who was also nominated for Female Vocalist and Video of the Year, looked radiant as she held up her award for Album of the Year. Her dress may not have been to everyone's taste as she wore a powder blue floor length dress complete with train, matching waist belt and ruched bodice. It may have been a bizarre mix of styles but Musgraves' large grin after winning an award distracted everyone from her strange ensemble. Lambert's dress matched Musgraves' prom style gown as she wore a strapless pink jacquard mini dress. Adding gold heeled sandals, she looked radiant as she posed for the press. 

Miranda Lambert
Miranda Lambert also wore a prom style dress.

Taylor Swift was notably absent from the award list, with the exception of her appearing in her mentor McGraw's video. She was nominated for two other awards including Entertainer and Female Vocalist but lost out on both respectively to GEORGE STRAIT and Lambert. Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton also lost out on awards. Shelton was nominated for Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Song, Album and Vocal Event of the Year yet failed to win even one award. Meanwhile Bryan was nominated for Entertainer, Male Vocalist and Album yet too went home disappointed.
