Blake Shelton was the king of the Country Music Assn. Awards on Thursday night in Nashville. He won the top prize, Entertainer of the Year for the first time, keeping frontrunner Taylor Swift from making it three wins in four years. (See full list of winners here.) 

Shelton also claimed his third consecutive Male Vocalist award while his wife Miranda Lambert made it three in a row for Female Vocalist, edging out Carrie Underwood, who hosted the kudos for the fifth year with Brad Paisley.

The couple also shared in Song of the Year for sentimental favorite "Over You," which they penned in tribute to his late brother.  

However, Lambert's rendition of the song lost Video of the Year to "Red Solo Cup" by Toby Keith which features numerous celebrity cameos and has been viewed more than 17 million times on YouTube.

While Thompson Square pulled off a shock with their win for Vocal Duo over reigning five-time champs Sugarland, they lost New Artist to longshot Hunter Hayes

Likewise Little Big Town won Vocal Group over heavily favored Lady Antebellum who were looking for their fourth win in a row. Little Big Town also claimed Single of the Year for their hit "Pontoon" over, among others, best-selling tracks by Shelton ("God Gave Me You") and Jason Aldean ("Dirt Road Anthem"). 

Veterans Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw teamed up for "Feel Like a Rock Star" and won Musical Event edging out the frontrunner -- Swift's collaboration with the Civil War on "Safe and Sound" for "The Hunger Games" soundtrack.
