Miranda Lambert won album of the year, and Sugarland took single record and song of the year honors for their mellow hit "Stay."

"I'm sitting right behind Kenny Chesney and I just don't feel right taking this," said Lambert, who won for her sophomore outing,

"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." "I'm a songwriter, and I poured my heart and soul into this album. Thank you for appreciating it."


The win was big for Lambert, who beat out superstars Chesney and Paisley, as well as hot new acts Taylor Swift and Rodney Atkins.


Jack Ingram won top new male vocalist. The 37-year-old Texan released his first album in 1992 and bounced around a number of record

labels before his career took off.  "Sometimes it takes a long time and that's my story," Ingram said backstage. "I put in a lot of hard miles,

and I'm thankful."

I would like to say congradulations to Miranda Lamber and her dad Rick and mom Bev...and to our friend Jack Ingram for his win, Travis Howard boy you be doin' good with them thar songs you write...
