LAS VEGAS (April 8, 2013)--Luke Bryan, 36, pulled off an amazing upset and won entertainer of the year at the CMAs Sunday night.
Bryan beat out some of country music's top winners, including two-time winner Taylor Swift, in an upset that few would have predicted.
The Georgia native recently began headlining his first arena tour and was the co-host of this year's show.
After an emotional speech, co-host Blake Shelton held Bryan up and joked that he won in his "first and last year as co-host" of the awards.
Bryan is the first male winner of the award since 2007 when Kenny Chesney won the first fan-voted award.
Swift and Underwood have won two apiece since then.
