American Idol winner Carrie Underwood continues to prove she was deserving of that crown, as the songstress had another huge night at the CMA Awards.
Carrie, who was also the night's co-host with Brad Paisley, took home the award for Female Vocalist of the Year for the third time in a row!
The superstar accept her trophy after singing her hit "Just A Dream," and had a message for one very special audience member.
"Mama, it's real hard to sing when you're in the second row crying," Carrie admitted.
Also keeping their streak in tact was Kenny Chesney, who won Entertainer of the Year for the fourth straight year.
"As much as tonight is about awards, I really believe that being able to stand up here is more about great songs," a choked-up Kenny said on the stage. "This is my fourth time standing up here, and I'm really humbled by it."
What I love most about the CMAs is that everyone always seems like they are having such a blast. There's very little of the "we're all better than you people at home" feeling, and all the stars really seem appreciative.
Makes this city slicker wish she was a country girl sometimes. Ya hear?
