CMAs 2013: Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert Win Male & Female Vocalist of Year

The CMAs in Nashville had viewers seeing stars, but unlike in years past, there wasn't one specific standout.

All the regulars – Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban and hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – were in town for country's biggest night, but some of the genre's heaviest hitters walked away uncharacteristically empty-handed.

Meanwhile, duo Florida Georgia Line, one of the newer acts over the last few years, walked away with two awards: single of the year for "Cruise" and vocal duo of the year.

Shelton walked away with album of the year for Based on a True Story, but his most memorable moment of the night was likely sharing an identical win for best male vocalist with wife Lambert, who won best female vocalist.



Swift didn't win any of the regular categories, but was honored with a special pinnacle award that recognized her "positive impact in the Academy of Country Music worldwide."

Kacey Musgraves landed new artist of the year; Lee Brice snagged the song of the year honor for "I Drive Your Truck"; vocal group of the year went to Little Big Town; and George Strait closed the night with the entertainer of the year win.
