Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift & Justin Bieber Win CMT Awards!

Country sweetheart Taylor Swift was, once again, the big winner at Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards. But, unfortunately, the 21-year-old singer wasn't even there to enjoy her big night!

The show, which took place in Nashville and was hosted by Kid Rock, kicked off with a pre-taped segment starring Swift and Shania Twain doing their best Thelma and Louise impression. Swift, who's currently on tour, later accepted the trophy for video of the year for "Mine" via satellite.

Newlyweds Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert had more to celebrate as both were recognized for their music. Lambert won best female country video for her emotional "The House That Built Me," while her new hubby was the night's only double winner. The Voice star scored a trophy in the best male video category for "Who Are You When I'm Not Looking," and he also won for best web video for "Kiss My Country Ass."

And would it really be an awards show if Justin Bieber didn't win something? The 17-year-old superstar shared his first country trophy with Rascal Flatts, winning best collaborative video for their hit "That Should Be Me."

Performance of the year went to the Zac Brown Band and icon Jimmy Buffett for their CMT Crossroads showing of "Margaritaville."

Other winners included Lady Antebellum, Sugarland and the breakthrough video winners The Band Perry for their haunting tune "If I Die Young."
