Everything went to script Sunday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards until the end -- when Luke Bryan pulled off an amazing upset and won entertainer of the year.
Bryan beat out some of country music's top winners, including two-time winner Taylor Swift, in an upset that few would have predicted. The 36-year-old Georgia native recently began headlining his first arena tour and was the co-host of this year's show.
Bryan is the first male winner of the award since 2007 when Kenny Chesney won the first fan-voted award. Swift and Carrie Underwood have won two apiece since then.
Miranda Lambert was the top winner. She won her fourth straight female vocalist award and picked up three trophies for her hit song "Over You" -- one for single record of the year and two for song of the year. She was performer of the song and co-wrote the song with Blake Shelton.
The top male vocalist award went to Jason Aldean
And Little Big Town won top vocal group.
