Jason Aldean took home the top prize – and cleaned house – at Monday's American Country Awards in Las Vegas.

"This is getting ridiculous," he said upon winning artist of the year, just one of the six awards he took home.

Carrie Underwood and Thompson Square each took home three awards, but Toby Keith may have stolen the evening, winning artist of the decade and performing his insanely quirky and catchy song "Red Solo Cup."

"Hell, anybody can have a good decade, huh?" he said. "I've had a great decade and I hope I have another one."

In its second year at MGM Grand in Vegas, the ACAs were hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Trace Adkins, the latter hosting for the second year in a row.

"They offered me a lot more money," Adkins joked before the show about returning as host. "Being the master of ceremonies with this many variables and this many uncontrollable people, nobody should be expected to do that. I'm not going to hold myself to high standards because no one should be expected to control these idiots."
