Carrie Underwood Makes History at Country Music Awards

Carrie Underwood Makes History at Country Music Awards

Cher looked fit and toned at the age of 63, in skin tight black leggings and a leather jacket as she made her very first appearance at the Academy of Country Music Awards. 

"The first song my Mom ever taught me was 'Hey Good Lookin,' and that was sixty…a long time ago," Cher said.

But the night belonged to Carrie Underwood. She made history becoming the first woman to win Entertainer of the Year twice.

Taylor Swift made quite an impression flying in a cage, but it was a disappointing night for her. She was nominated for five awards but went home empty-handed.

And on the red carpet at the 2010 Academy of Country Music Awards all eyes were on Julianne Hough.

Former Dancing with the Stars cutie Julianne Hough looked gorgeous in a white gown with metallic accents.

"I kinda sometimes go over the top with the makeup and hair, but we're in Vegas. You know what let's do it! I'm a girl, I like to be over the top," she said.

Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn also turned up.

"I think downhill skiing, going 80 miles an hour, is easier for me than walking onstage in a super long dress," she said.

Brad Paisley got soaked when he fell into a hot tub at the end of his performance. But the talk of the night was Matthew McConaughey, who left his girlfriend Camila Alves blushing. 

"After the show last year, my lady and I even went back to the hotel and conceived the little lady who is now our daughter, Vida Alves McConaughey," McConaughey said onstage.

Show host Reba McEntire brought down the house with this crack that kicked off the show:

"Lots of songs about cowboy Casanovas, white liars, and two-timing men, and I'd like to thank Tiger Woods and Jesse James for inspiring us all!"
