The 2012 CMA Awards winners all had a big year in their own way, and the Nov. 1 awards show is the perfect way to celebrate — completed only by new metal statues for the mantle.

Folks like Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and Toby Keith accepted early honors on the biggest night in country music., while Little Big Town took home the first award during the official broadcast. But perhaps the biggest winner of the evening was Blake Shelton, who walked away with Male Vocalist of the Year and the coveted Entertainer of the Year award.

Of course, recurring hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood were there for all of the action — which airs live from Nashville annually — though some may say they have the easy job. The hardest part of the CMAs is likely choosing winners from an endless list of country music talent.
