Jason Aldean may have won the single most prestigious honor, but Chris Stapleton was the biggest winner on country music’s big stage.

Stapleton, the genre’s Cinderella story of the decade, took home four trophies from the 51st annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

That would be double the amount won by anyone else if you’re keeping score, and continues an impressive win streak for the "Traveler."

The hirsute singer-songwriter had previously nabbed three CMA and two Grammys, proving that this very, very far from a fluke.

Miranda Lambert was one of the ACMs’ double victors Sunday, winning Female Vocalist of the Year (for the seventh straight year).

She also won Vocal Event of the Year for her "Smokin’ and Drinkin’" collaboration with Vocal Group of the Year winners Little Big Town.

Jason Aldean was named Entertainer of the Year, considered the top honor at the event. See the list of ACM Awards winners below!
