Male Video of the Year: Luke Bryan
After striking out at last year's CMTs, Luke Bryan was thrilled to hear his name called for Best Male Video of the Year. Bryan's "I Don't Want This Night to End" beat out heavy-hitters like Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, and Toby Keith (who also played host for the night).
Female Video of the Year: Miranda Lambert
While her husband Blake Shelton walked away empty-handed, Miranda Lambert has a new trophy to put on the family mantle. Lambert's "Over You" earned the honor of Best Female Video of the Year, making this the third year in a row she's won the category.

Lady Antebellum was the clear favorite to win Group Video of the Year for their song "We Owned the Night," and their fans didn't let them down when it came to voting. The trio consisting of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood has been on a hot streak of late, also winning Top Country Artist at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards and Best Country Album at this year's Grammys.
Duo Video of the Year: Thompson Square

Breakthrough Video of the Year: Scotty McCreery

It was a close battle against Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter's hit "You and Tequila," but Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood ended up victorious in the Collaborative Video category for their song "Remind Me." The award made Underwood the only artist to go home with multiple CMT trophies.
Performance of the Year: Jason Aldean
