It was a night of crossovers at yesterday’s Country Music Association Awards: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and pop singer Kelly Clarkson both debuted on the country stage. Paltrow performed the single from her upcoming movie Country Strong, and Clarkson was on hand to sing a duet with Jason Aldean, E! reports. But Miranda Lambert was the night’s big winner, taking home three awards: Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.

Lambert’s fiancé, Blake Shelton, won Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year, making them the first couple to win vocalist awards in the same year since 2000, PopEater notes. The night’s top prize—Entertainer of the Year—went to one of the ceremony’s co-hosts, Brad Paisley. Other winners included Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, and the Zac Brown Band.
