Other winners included Josh Turner, who took home the Entertainer of the Year honor, while seven-time ACA nominee Easton Corbin won for Best New Artist. Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins won Best Duo for their chart-topping hit, 'Hillbilly Bone.' Lady Antebellum's record-breaking hit, 'Need You Now,' took home Best Song of the Year and Luke Bryan earned Best Album for his sophomore effort, 'Doin' My Thing.'
Rounding out the awards, Mark Chesnutt won for Best Live Performance, and Dailey and Vincent earned the honor for Best Bluegrass Group.
