Miranda Lambert Dominates 2014 CMA Awards, Luke Bryan Nabs First

Bryan’s first-ever CMA comes in the top category of the night, Entertainer of the Year

Last Updated: November 7, 2014 @ 8:30 AM

It was a huge night for Miranda Lambert at the 2014 Country Music Association Awards on ABC, but in some ways an even bigger one for Luke Bryan. The event was presided over by perennial hosts and fan-favorites Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. It was their seventh time hosting.

Lambert took home four awards out of the nine categories she was nominated in, including album of the year, single of the year and female vocalist of the year. But she didn’t take home the night’s top prize. That one went to Luke Bryan, and it was his first-ever CMA trophy.

The night’s entertainment featured plenty of unlikely duets, including Lambert pairing with Meghan Trainor for the latter’s hit “All About That Bass.” Other performances paired Blake Shelton with Ashley Monroe, while Little Big Town sang with Ariana Grande and the Doobie Brothers hit the stage with Hillary Scott, Jennifer Nettles and Hunter Hayes.
