Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift Win 2012 Billboard Country Honors
British singer Adele and pop group LMFAO may have dominated at last night’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, but two country artists did take home statues, and another earned Woman of the Year honors.
Swift was, though, named Billboard’s Woman of the Year. The award was actually announced last fall, but she received it on camera during last night’s award show — after an introduction by country icon Kris Kristofferson.
Plenty of country artists showed up for the ceremony, and if you’re curious you can check out what they wore on the red carpet.
The ceremony also included tributes to the late Whitney Houston, Donna Summer, Adam Yauch of the Beastie boys, and also Robin Gibb of the Bee-Gees, who died earlier that same day.
