Luke Bryan scooped nine awards at the American Country Awards, including the coveted artist and album of the year.

His hit I Don't Want This Night To End from his third album Tailgates and Tanlines received best single and music video of the year.

The third annual awards, voted for by fans, were given out at a Las Vegas ceremony on Monday night.

Bryan, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Trace Adkins all performed at the event.

The second biggest winner of the night was Miranda Lambert with three trophies - winning every prize she was nominated for.

The singer first found fame as a finalist on reality TV programme Nashville Star in 2003 and is married to fellow country star Blake Shelton.

Touring artist of the year went to Jason Aldean.

Former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood won female artist of the year while the TV talent show's runner up from last year, Lauren Alaina, picked up new artist of the year.
