Blake Shelton took home the most awards from the 2011 CMT Music Awards. Blake won Male Video of the Year and Web Video of the Year. Miranda Lambert, fittingly won Female Video of the Year for her smash hit ‘The House That Built Me.’ It was expected that Lady Antebellum, Sugarland and the Band Perry would bring home video accolades, but there were some surprises, too. Teen hearttrob Justin Bieber took home his first CMA Award for a collaboration with Rascal Flatts, and
Taylor Swift won CMT’s prestigious Video of the Year award for ‘Mine’ — beating out nine other artists! Oh, and we can’t forget Blake Shelton’s Male Video of the Year award presented by Shania Twain, who took a spill before even hitting the stage!
"I don't need a stunt double," Shania Twain joked after taking a nasty fall on her way to the stage to present Blake Shelton with the 2011 CMT Music Award for Male Video of the Year. Luckily, the singer didn't hurt herself in what she calls "one of life's most embarrassing moments" -- tumbling on live television on what appeared to be a recently waxed floor. Watch below Shania's video response to the accident, which she posted on her Twitter page just after the show.
In a clever opening to the CMT Music Awards, Taylor Swift and Shania Twain went on one memorable road trip. In a parody of the classic movie, 'Thelma and Louise,' the fellow female superstars jump in their blue convertible and leave the guys in the dust -- including comedian Ron White, 'Glee' actor Chord Overstreet and CMT Awards host Kid Rock. Throw in an additional cameo by Donald Trump, and hilarity insues. Watch the video below.
Brad Paisley is donating all of the royalties from the sale of the ‘Old Alabama’ digital single to the tornado victims via the Red Cross, while NASCAR is selling bracelets in order to raise funds for the victims down South, as well. Brad is also talking about filming the video for "Old Alabama" admitting that it wasn't actually legal to drive Jeff Gordon's #24 car down the city street shown in the video. Brad tells ESPN, "We didn't make it street legal. We just drove the thing. People were freaking out! Imagine that car going by you -- Jeff himself was out there driving his racecar on the roads."
