Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert and Florida Georgia Line were the big winners at Wednesday’s 2013 CMT Music Awards, held at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

The former American Idol champ won the fan-voted video of the year award — the fourth time she’s done so — for Blown Away.

“Whew, the good Lord has been very good to me — well, all of us in this room, for a long time,” the 30-year-old beauty said. “First and foremost, I’d like to just thank Him for our love of music.”

The Oklahoma native also paid homage to her tornado-ravaged home state with an emotional rendition of See You Again.

Lambert won CMT performance video of the year for Over You, and female video of the year for Mama’s Broken Heart; while Florida Georgia Line earned the win for breakthrough video, and duo video of the year, for Cruise.

With their hits Downtown, country stalwarts Lady Antebellum took home the group video award.

Another notable winner on the evening was The Voice‘s Blake Shelton, getting the male video of the year for Sure Be Cool If You Did, with his wife Lambert collecting the award on his behalf, as he was working on the NBC hit. (She was the presenter as well, to boot!)

And what would any award show ceremony be without Taylor Swift, who performed her single Red flanked by a cadre of flag bearers.
