In what has become an annual tradition, country superstar Kenny Chesney took home the Entertainer of the Year title at Sunday night's 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony in Las Vegas, marking the fourth year in a row that he's won the Academy's top trophy.

The former hubby of Renée Zellweger wasn't the only country star to have a big night on Sunday. Honky-tonk hunk Brad Paisley did double duty in the winner's circle, taking home honors for both Best Male Vocalist and for Video of the Year for his song, "Online." Also winning twice last night were the folks of Sugarland, who picked up awards for Single of the Year and Song of the Year for their hit, "Stay."

Continuing her domination of all-things-awards, Carrie Underwood once again claimed victory in the Top Female Vocalist category. During the ceremony, the former American Idol champ joined Best Male Vocalist Paisley onstage to sing "Make the World Go Away," in tribute to country legend Eddy Arnold, who passed away on May 8 at the age of 89.
