Carrie Underwood Wins Top Honors: Entertainer of the Year; CMA 2009

And for my one country music blog entry for the year (at least for now):

Carrie Underwood took the Academy of Country Music Awards’ top prize on Sunday night, April 5, 2009, taking home Entertainer of the Year – besting the likes of Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, George Strait, and Keith Urban.

No signs of stopping her: she’s well regarded and respected by legends in the field and already inducted into the Grand Ole Opry – but, as Chesney congratulated with a hug, the camera caught George Strait looking none too happy.  Check out video of her big CMA win, her speech, and her performance from the night (a cover of Randy Travis’ “I Told You So” from 1987).

All of America will wake up on Monday and think that her defeat to Taylor Swift for Album of the Year was all a dream.
