It’s official – I want to be Carrie Underwood.  Not in a creepy, stalkerish kind of way.  I’m not parked outside her house right now.  Honestly, I’m not.  But damn, that girl has got a pretty good life, and only about five years or so after being shot into a life of super stardom from her win on American Idol.  Unlike some others who come from that show, she hasn’t tried to distance herself from it.  Sure, some of those folks sadly fade back into obscurity, but Underwood has shown she knows how to make a good thing work, and last night’s Country Music Awards were no exception.  She took home the big prize, Entertainer of the Year, beating out Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and the Zac Brown Band, among others.  Oh, and all this comes on the heels of the news of her engagement to NHL player Mike Fisher.  Carrie Underwood me, please.  RadarOnline has the news on some of the other wins of the evening:

Top-selling trio Lady Antebellum was the dominant winner at Las Vegas‘ MGM Grand, grabbing five trophies including song and single record of the year for their crossover hit “Need You Now”.

Miranda Lambert beat out Lady Antebellum with her self-titled debut for album of the year for “Revolution.”

Lambert, whose “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” won album of the year in 2007, also beat them in the video category with “White Liar”.

And Brooks & Dunn, who are retiring after a summer tour, won best vocal duo for the 10th time in their two-decade long career.

A highlight of the night was Taylor Swift’s performance of “Change”, while soaring over the crowd on a platform.

She ripped off her white dress and reveal a black outfit underneath, made her way through the crowd and joined the Tritones, a college co-ed a capella group on stage for a spirited chorus.

She then fell backward into a crowd of fans.

She had to make a big splash after her fiasco at this year’s Grammy Awards.  What, you didn’t think I’d end this article on a positive note, did you?
