Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins Wins at ACM Awards 2010

Lambert beat out her friends, Lady Antebellum, in the category. But  the trio had won two awards Sunday, song and single record of the year  for their crossover hit "Need You Now."

Joined by her two producers, Frank Liddell and Mike Wrucke, on stage,  Miranda graciously tried to offer the producers a chance to speak. But  CBS began to play music and pan the cameras out as Mike began to talk,  causing an obviously annoyed Miranda to yell, “Really?!” before the show  cut to more footage of the Zac Brown Band on  their USO tour.

The first two ACM Awards were handed out Saturday night at the MGM  Grand in Las Vegas and Miranda Lambert won the award for best video of  the year for “White Liar.”

As we are out on this tour, we’re really trying first and foremost to  give the fans the best show we can. We’re trying some new things on  stage — you will have to come to the show to see what they are! We’re  going to play a couple songs acoustic with the full band each night and  we’re also going to bring back and re-work a lot of old stuff that  people have been requesting over the last few years. It’s such a great  chance to do all the things that we’ve [thought of and said] “Man, that  would be so cool if we…”

The show, held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, kicked off with Carrie  Underwood and Lambert, joined on stage later by Brad Paisley, Charlie  Daniels and John Fogerty, who ripped through a rendition of Creedence  Clearwater Revival’s “Travelin’ Band.”

Top-selling trio Lady Antebellum was the dominant winner at the ACMs,  grabbing five trophies. Other winners included Miranda Lambert, who won  three awards, including album and top female vocalist.

It was the third ACM win for Adkins and the first for Shelton, who  says the award finally makes him feel like he’s been accepted in  Nashville.

Lambert said she "had a blast" making the video because all of her  band and crew were there with her and she was able to work her best  friend from third grade into the video, too. But it was Jamey  Johnson who really took morale up a notch or two, she?said.
