"I just want to say thank you for letting me release my heartbreak and sharing it with me," she said as she accepted her award for Album of the Year.

She was referring to her divorce from her husband of four years, Blake Shelton, who didn't attend the awards show in Las Vegas.

He tweeted a photo Sunday of himself enjoying a libation in Oklahoma.

Lambert also won Female Vocalist of the Year for the eighth year in a row, making her the first woman to achieve the feat. She brought her boyfriend of more than a year, singer Anderson East, to help celebrate the night.
