Carrie Underwood Wins Big at 2010 CMT Music Awards

By Dave Paris on June 10, 2010

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Carrie Underwood won twice, including the night's top prize for video of the year, to emerge as the big winner at the 2010 CMT Music Awards held Wednesday in Nashville.

Underwood, 27, won video of the year honors for "Cowboy Casanova." She also grabbed the CMT performance of the year video for a live version of "Temporary Home."

"Awesome fans," Underwood said as she accepted the video of the year trophy. "Thanks for seeing me out on the tour. God bless you guys. You are the best."

Lady Antebellum also had a good night, winning group video of the year for "Need You Now."

Other notable winners included Brooks & Dunn, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins.

"We were very much not expecting this," joked Kix Brooks as he accepted the duo video award for Brooks & Dunn's "Indian Summer." "We were not expecting this so much that Mr. Dunn has gone to the restroom – in Santa Fe, N.M. ... If you think I'm bringing you this award, Ronnie, you're crazy, man. This is just the kind of thing that will make 'em think we're breaking up the duo."

The ceremony, held at the Bridgestone Arena, was hosted by Kid Rock.

Carrie Underwood Dishes on Her Wedding Day Plans

By Alexis Sezar on January 7, 2010

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Carrie Underwood says her southern influence will be in full force whenever her wedding day rolls around.

"I like big hair and eyeliner. I want my wedding day to be me, so I'll probably be rocking some big hair and some eyeliner," the newly engaged country star told People at the People's Choice Awards held Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Underwood, 26, got engaged last month to hockey star Mike Fisher. With both stars frequently on the road, the "Cowboy Casanova" singer said the couple stays in touch thanks to some handy technology.

"We're big texters," said Underwood, who will make her acting debut in a March episode of CBS' How I Met Your Mother. "We talk on the phone. I-Chatting, I don't know what we'd do without it to be honest."

While the pair has yet to pick a wedding date, Underwood said she's keeping her big day simple.

"[I want] a groom, good food and an open bar," she said.
