ACM Awards: Carrie Underwood Wins Entertainer Of The Year

Carrie Underwood, the 26-year-old blond beauty catapulted to success after winning American Idol four years ago, was honored with the Entertainer of the year award Sunday at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Clad in an elegant white dress to accept the big prize, Underwood, who has racked up right No. 1 singles since launching her post-Idol solo career, was the first female talent to capture the honor since the Dixie Chicks in 2000. She said she accepted the award, in part, for all of the unrecognized women in country music who paved the way for her.
