The 2012 Country Music Association Awards crowned its new king and queen: Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert, who together scored a total of five trophies last night. Co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley opened the 46th annual CMA Awards with a country version of Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger”: “We got moves like Haggard.” They also did their own version of Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and riffed on Swift’s hit single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” noting she recently broken up with boyfriend Conor Kennedy. They also poked a little fun at the night’s honored guest, Willie Nelson, who received a Lifetime Achievement award. “Tonight we are honoring the great Willie Nelson,” Paisley said, “and also simultaneously we are going to strip you of all your CMA Awards. Sorry.” “Because Willie,” Underwood said, “it appears there’s been some doping charges.” “Guilty!” said Nelson, a noted marijuana advocate. In one of the awards’ most emotional moments, Shelton and Lambert won song of the year for “Over You.” As Lambert openly wept on stage, Shelton recounted how the loss of his older brother, Richie, and father, Dick, spurred the couple to write the heart-rending song. The couple also took home Male and Female Vocalist of the Year and Blake took home Entertainer of the year. Last night’s winners include:
