Country singer Carrie Underwood has won the top award at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville for the third time in six years.

The former American Idol winner picked up the coveted video of the year prize for her track Good Girl.

Underwood was the only multiple winner at the ceremony, also winning collaborative video of the year with Brad Paisley for Remind Me.

Other winners included Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum and Luke Bryan.

Bryan's I Don't Want This Night to End and Lambert's Over You were named male and female video of the year respectively, while Lady Antebellum won the group video category for We Owned The Night.

Jason Aldean won for CMT Performance of the Year - a special category for live performances featured on the music channel - for Tattoos on This Town from the 2011 CMT Artists of the Year special.

Thompson Square picked up duo video for I Got You and last year's American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery, received the breakthrough video of the year award for The Trouble With Girls.
