The CMT Music Awards were brimming with girl power Wednesday night as Country sweethearts Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert took home the ceremony's top prizes.

Carrie's hit Blown Away nabbed the CMT Awards' biggest honor, Video of the Year, while Miranda accepted Female Video of the Year statue for Mama's Broken Heart (as well as CMT Performance of the Year). Blake Shelton also earned a trophy for his latest single, Sure Be Cool if You Did, but was unable to join his wife for the festivities due to commitments in Los Angeles.

Additionally, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Eric Church graced the stage to claim a prize or two during the raucous show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Jason Aldean. Punctuated with all-star performances by Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, the two-and-a-half hour ceremony was filled with memorable moments, including a particularly hilarious open where "experienced" host Kristen Bell enlists celebrity help from former host Reba McEntire, Vince Vaughn, Kelsey Grammer, Dr. Drew Pinsky and more (watch it here!) to school Jason Aldean in the ways of hosting an awards show like a pro.
