Lambert Wins Three And Paisley Gets Entertainer

Top CMA Awards nominee Miranda Lambert, who entered “Country Music’s Biggest Night” with a record nine nominations, walked away with three CMA Awards, including Female Vocalist, Album for Revolution (produced by Frank Liddell and Mike Wrucke) and Music Video of the Year for “The House That Built Me” (directed by Trey Fanjoy, who picked up her second consecutive Award in that category). The three Awards were the first CMAs she has won in her career.

Awards co-host Brad Paisley won the big one, Entertainer of the Year, which was his first win in the category.
