Luke Bryan Wins Entertainer of the Year at ACM Awards, Left Speechless

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Luke Bryan won Entertainer of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards last night, and no one was more surprised by this than Luke himself.

Bryan upset Miranda Lambert and her husband Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and two-time Entertainer of the Year Taylor Swift to claim the top prize.

The 36-year-old Georgia native, who is relatively new to the spotlight, recently began headlining his first arena tour, making his win a shock to many.

"I don't know what to say guys," Bryan said. "Thank you so much, fans, for doing this to me. Thank you so much for making my life what it is."

"What I always wanted to be was just a country singer who got to ride on a tour bus and show up on a new stage and play music every night."

After an emotional speech, ACMA co-host Blake Shelton held his partner up and joked that he won in his "first and last year as co-host" of the awards.

Bryan is the first male winner of the award since 2007 when Kenny Chesney claimed it. Swift and Carrie Underwood have won two apiece since then.

Bryan's win was the talk of Las Vegas Sunday night but Lambert again walked away as the academy's trophy magnet, claiming three major honors.

Did you think Luke deserved the top award?

Luke Bryan is a phenomenal entertainer and he has a huge fan base. Just look up the All Time Attendance records for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo ... he is 2nd for highest attendance which includes beating Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney!! Luke Bryan deserves this WIN ... enough said!!

@ Dana Hebner

I agree with you! Heck he was only what like 7,000 from beating George Strait's attendance? He did deserve the award because he is selling out all his shows and has amazing songs. I hope he gets it next year too. It's definitely well deserved with out a doubt.


Congrates you won. i new u would LukeByan!!!!!


I just don't understand how he could have won. It is voted on by fans. He just started headlining. How in the world could he have had more fans the some of those others? I'm not saying he didn't deserve it.

@ Rick Austin

Enough said! It was well deserved. If you see a person go down to the altar to be saved, he will get to HEAVEN just as fast as the person who was saved 20 years ago. Well deserved Luke.♥♥♥♥
