Carrie Underwood is one happy girl. According to JSYK: The recently engaged singer won Entertainer of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, becoming the first female performer to win the honor twice.

“I think I just got makeup all over Brad Paisley,” Carrie said while accepting her award. “Thank you, God, praise the Lord.” The 27-year-old singer beat out Brad, Kenny Chesney, the Zac Brown Band, Toby Keith, George Strait, Keith Urban and Taylor Swift.

Carrie also took home a special statue for her “triple crown” of ACM wins — entertainer of the year, top female vocalist and top newcomer — throughout her career. 

Unfortunately, Taylor Swift came up empty-handed, losing out in each of the five categories she was nominated for this year. She did, however, provide a memorable performance, singing her ballad ‘Change’ before going into ‘You Belong With Me’ with the University of California San Diego a cappella group the Tritones as expected.
