Taylor Swift wins video of year at CMT Awards

“I’ve said this before: Country and hip hop aren’t that far apart in spirit if you break it down,” he said after the show. “They’re both blues music.”

Shelton, who appeared via video uplink from the set of his reality contest show “The Voice,” won male video of the year for “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking” and best Web video for “Kiss My Country Ass.” Sugarland kicked off the night with the first win, taking duo video of the year for “Stuck Like Glue.”

Lady Antebellum won group video of the year for “Hello World.” The Band Perry won breakthrough video for “If I Die Young.” Jimmy Buffett and Zac Brown won best CMT performance of the year for “Margaritaville.” And pop heartthrob Bieber added a CMT belt buckle to the pile of trophies he’s won in the last year, taking home best collaboration with Rascal Flatts for “That Should Be Me.”

Long a fan of Rascal Flatts, Bieber drew some of the night’s biggest cheers from the crowd in a corridor of the arena, where the red carpet was moved to avoid oppressive temperatures near 100. One of the night’s largest entourages included Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox’s daughters, 10-year-old Brittany and 8-year-old Brooklyn, who were clearly smitten with the teen sensation.

“If I wanted to go home, I had no choice but to bring them,” LeVox said.
