Carrie Underwood Wins ‘Favorite Country Album’ at the 2012 American Music Awards
It was a big night for Carrie Underwood Sunday (November 18th) at the 40th annual American Music Awards. Not only did she put on an amazing live performance of her song, ‘Two Black Cadillacs’, but a few minutes later, she also picked up the AMA for ‘Favorite Country Album’ for ‘Blown Away’.
It’s the seventh American Music Award in Underwood’s career, and the fourth time she’s won in the country album category. That feat sounds pretty impressive, right? If you think about it, Carrie winning her 4th ‘Favorite Country Album’ is incredible, since she’s only released four CD’s in her young career.
In case you missed it, here’s Carrie’s acceptance speech:
Husband and professional hockey player Mike Fisher was in the audience (holding Carrie’s purse). His schedule has been free to hang out with his bride lately, with the NHL on strike.
Other winners on the night included Justin Bieber, who won the most (3) including Artist of the Year. American Idol judge Nicki Minaj took home two prizes. Other winners included Lady Antebellum (Favorite Country Duo or Group), Taylor Swift (Female Country Artist), and Luke Bryan (Male Country Artist).
