Country music’s reigning sweetheart Carrie Underwood won Female Artist of the Year at the 2012 American Country Awards in Las Vegas on Monday night (Dec. 10).

Presenter Rodney Carrington joked beforehand that the winner of the award — which he called “Best Female in the World” — usually kisses the presenter. He was evidently hoping to get an obligatory peck from one of the nominees, which also included Sara Evans, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Taylor Swift.

Underwood didn’t deliver on the kiss, but she certainly appeared thankful for the honor. “I know that I om one of the luckiest people, most blessed people,” she said. She thanked God and her fans, as well as the other nominated performers, gushing, “I am in such fabulous company tonight.”

Underwood also won Single of the Year: Vocal Collaboration for ‘Remind Me’ with Brad Paisley.
