He cleaned up during the fan-voted show, earning nine awards, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. His smash hit "I Don't Want This Night to End" was named Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year.
Miranda Lambert took home the second most guitar trophies with three. Jason Aldean was named Touring Artist of the Year. Carrie Underwood won Female Artist of the Year, and a tearful Lauren Alaina won New Artist of the Year.
Mr. Bryan, Mr. Aldean, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Trace Adkins with Lynyrd Skynrd were among the high-energy performances.
