Chris Young and LeAnn Rimes teamed up at Monday's 2012 American Country Awards to announce the award for Music Video of the Year by a Group. With Gloriana, Lady Antebellum, the Band Perry, Little Big Town, and Love and Theft vying for the award guitar, competition was fierce.

In the end, Little Big Town snagged yet another award for their No. 1 tune 'Pontoon.' Even though fans everywhere are preparing for cold temperatures and the holiday season, there's still a lot of appeal to LBT's summery country anthem.

"You guys are the greatest fans in the world and you're the reason we're all here tonight,"  This is why we get to do what we do," said guitarist Jimi Westbrook.

Later on, vocalist Kimberly Schlapman chimed in to let attendees and viewers know that those guitar awards that artists are hauling around tonight are actually not made of cardboard, to her surprise. "They're like for real," she quipped. "They're heavy and everything."

The entire band was sure to thank their fans, their label, their families, and -- of course -- they took time to thank Jesus for the award.
