CMT Music Awards 2012: Lady Antebellum and Thompson Square Added to Winner List
More winners were revealed at the live telecast of the 11th Annual CMT Music Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee, Nashville. Lady Antebellum and Thompson Square followed the footsteps of Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Scotty McCreery and Jason Aldean, who already received a prize each earlier in the Wednesday evening, June 6.
After losing CMT Performance of the Year to Aldean, Lady A triumphantly grabbed Group Video of the Year. They won the title through their "We Owned the Night" clip, beating Eli Young Band, Pistol Annies, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry and Zac Brown Band.
They were presented the prize by Aldean. Hillary Scott joked, "I just walked a mile in these shoes. Thanks first and foremost to the fans. We love you so much." Dave Haywood applauded CMT for still playing music videos, while Charles Kelley gave shout-out to the video director.
Prior to Lady A's win, husband and wife duo Keifer and Shawna Thompson collected Duo Video of the Year. They got double nomination in this category, thanks to "Glass" and "I Got You", and they won it through the latter. They pushed aside Love and Theft, Montgomery Gentry, Sugarland and The Civil Wars. They received the award from Underwood and pro skater Tony Hawk.
Keifer Thompson said, "Wow. This has been an amazing ride for me and Shawna. First, we want to thank God for all the blessings and country fans for changing our lives forever." Shawna chimed in, "It wasn't long ago that we were selling boots and buckles at a store down the street ... so it's sure nice to be getting one."
Brantley Gilbert, who lost his chance to win Breakthrough Video of the Year since it's snatched by McCreery, didn't walk home empty-handed as well. He was awarded Nationwide Is On Your Side Award by CMT.
