Scotty McCreery & Taylor Swift Win Big at 2012 ACMs!
Scotty McCreery, last year's American Idol winner, won big last night at the Academy of Country Music Awards when he was named New Artist of the Year!
His name joined other stars in country music who have made a splash, and by that we mean none other than Taylor Swift! The 22-year-old picked up the Entertainer of the Year award. Not only that, she was the only female in the category and beat out all the guys!
This was the second year in a row she won the coveted award in the fan-voted category. Taylor dished, "I'm so happy about this... I want to say to my fellow nominees in this category, I respect you so much and I love you."
Kelly Clarkson, another Idol winner, went home with not one but two trophies. Kelly earned two ACMs for the same song. Kelly and Jason Aldean won Vocal Event of the Year and Song of the Year for "Don't You Wanna Stay."
Another reality show, The Voice, was prominent since coach Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert took home multiple trophies. He snagged the Male Vocalist of the Year award and she walked home with Female Vocalist and Album of the Year.
In fact, it was Miranda's third Album of the Year win! She exclaimed, "Every record is amazing, and I'm so thrilled. I will never take this trophy for granted. My albums are my babies."
