Florida Georgia Line were the big winners at the 2013 American Country Awards, taking home six trophies at Tuesday’s ceremony.

The duo won prizes in the Single of the Year and Single of the Year: New Artist categories for its hit song “Cruise” as well as Radio Track of the Year, Radio Track of the Year: New Artist, Music Video of the Year: New Artist and the prestigious New Artist title.

Blake Shelton also had a big night picking up four awards, including Album of the Year for “Based on a True Story…” as well as Single of the Year: Male, Music Video of the Year: Male and Great American Country Music Video of the Year.

His wife, Miranda Lambert, didn’t go home empty handed – she was awarded the Female Artist Of The Year title.

Luke Bryan, who dominated the prizegiving last year, received three awards, including Artist of the Year: Male and the coveted Artist of the Year honor, bringing his total to a record-breaking 12 awards, more than any other musician in the ceremony’s history.

Lady Antebellum reclaimed their status as Group Of The Year after winning the title in 2012, and former American Idol champion Scotty McCreery was hailed the Breakthrough Artist Of The Year.

Throughout the night, special awards were also handed out, as Dwight Yoakam presented Brad Paisley with the Video Visionary Award and Taylor Swift received the first-ever Worldwide Artist Award from Olivia Newton-John.

The fourth annual American Country Awards, which aired live from Las Vegas, was hosted by Trace Adkins and American NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, and featured performances from Sheryl Crow, Darius Rucker, and LeAnn Rimes.
