Last night’s ACM Awards 2013 brought a surprising upset when Luke Bryan beat out big name artists such as The Voice mentor Miranda Lambert and fellow singer Taylor Swift to take home the coveted Entertainer of the Year award. But no one seemed more surprised that Bryan. Keep reading to see what happened and hear what he had to say about his win.
According to CBS, it was obvious Bryan wasn’t expecting to win the Entertainer of the Year award especially considering he was up against big name artists like Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, and Blake Shelton. When his name was announced as Entertainer of the Year, Bryan was totally shocked. Visibly humbled, he stood with his head down for a while trying to collect himself and appeared to be fighting back his emotions. When he was finally able to speak, he said, “I don’t know what to say, guys…Thank you guys so much…This is a defining moment in my life.”
Even though she didn’t win Entertainer of the Year, Lambert didn’t go home empty handed. She racked up as the biggest winner of the night taking home three awards, which included Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Over You,” a very personal song co-written with husband Blake Shelton about the tragic death of his older brother, and Female Vocalist of the Year.
Swift, on the other hand, didn’t do so well. In fact, she was completely shut out and left the ACM Awards 2013 empty handed after failing to win even a single award.
