This was country music star Jason Aldean's year to shine at the fan-voted American Country Awards. The 34-year-old made his debut back in 2005, but this year all his hard work finally paid off. He walked away from Monday's ACAs (held in Las Vegas) with six awards, including artist of the year and record of the year for My Kinda Party.
"This is getting a little ridiculous now," he said after he won his second award. "I don't know what else to say. It's been a crazy year."
In addition to the night's top two honors, Aldean went on to win awards for touring artist of the year, male single of the year for "My Kinda Party," and vocal collaboration single of the year and music video collaboration of the year for "Don't You Wanna Stay" featuring Kelly Clarkson.
Carrie Underwood also had a big night, raking in three awards, including female artist of the year and female single of the year for "Mama's Song."
"You guys vote like crazy," she said to the fans.
Also nabbing three wins were the husband-and-wife duo Thompson Square. Shawna and Keifer Thompson won the awards for group single, new artist single and new artist video of the year for their breakthrough hit "Are You Going To Kiss Me Or Not."
Carrie Underwood wasn't the only American Idol winner to score big at the ACAs. Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery earned new artist of the year honors.
Chris Young won awards for breakthrough artist and single of the year for his hit "Voices," while Blake Shelton snagged video of the year for "Who Are You When I'm Not Looking" and Lady Antebellum was named group of the year for the second time in a row. Alabama was honored with a greatest hits award, and Toby Keith was named the artist of the decade for being the most-played country star on the radio for the past 10 years. Way to go, everyone!
