The third time was the charm for Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert.
The Nashville-based Lady Antebellum – Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood – accepted honors for group video of the year at Wednesday’s CMT Music Awards – an award they took home in 2010 and 2011.
“Thank you, CMT, for really connecting the dot with these videos,” Haywood told the audience gathered at the Bridgestone Arena after the win for their song “We Owned the Night.” “Thank you for playing these things.”
Luke Bryan was the man of the hour when he was awarded male video of the year for his hit “I Don’t Want This Night to End.” He celebrated by pulling a pair of underwear from his pants and hurling it into the crowd, where women fought over it.
Carrie Underwood’s Glittery Wins
Then she capped the evening by winning video of the year for “Good Girl.”
Underwood wasn’t the only American Idol alum winning big at the CMT Music Awards.
Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery beat out former fellow competitor Lauren Alaina in the breakthrough video of the year category for his song “The Trouble with Girls.”
Later, a cowboy hat-happy Jason Aldean nabbed honors for performance of the year with his song “Tattoos on This Town.”
