Carrie Underwood Wins ACM's Entertainer of the Year

Carrie Underwood wins the night’s top honors at the 2009 Academy Of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand on Sunday (April 5) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 26-year-old American Idol champ picked up Top Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year (a fan-voted category this year), beating out Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and George Strait. During her acceptance speech, Carrie twirled around and gushed, “Mike baby, I wish you were here,” shouting out her boyfriend, Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher.

During the ceremony, Carrie also performed her hit song “I Told You So” in a gorgeous merlot Rafael Cennamo gown, which overtook half of the stage. Check out her performance below!
