Blake Shelton was crowned king at the 46th Country Music Association Awards, winning three trophies, including the coveted Entertainer of the Year prize.
"When I moved to Nashville in 1994, I had two goals: one day to have a gold record, and one day to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry," the Voice judge told the Bridgestone Arena crowd Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn. "Entertainer of the Year — what is this? I don't know how this happened, but I freaking love it."
Shelton even made CMA history with wife Miranda Lambert — in more ways than one. The country couple won Male and Female Vocalist of the Year for the third consecutive year. They even took home Song of the Year for their tear-jerking duet "Over You," becoming the first married couple to garner the honor.Carrie Underwood for the fifth consecutive year, also saw Alabama quartet Little Big Town pick up Vocal Group of the Year and Single of the Year for their hit "Pontoon," while Eric Church's "Chief" won Album of the Year.
