You didn’t have to be in attendance to win the awards tonight at the 2011 CMT Music Awards. Taylor Swift, away on her “Speak Now” tour, was live via satellite to receive her award for Video Of The Year. Her acceptance speech was cut out by a poor feed, however. Blake Shelton took home the most hardware for the night, winning the first ever Web Video Of The Year off-camera for “Kiss My Country Ass”, as well as getting the Male Video of the Year for “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking”. He accepted the later one by a taped segment while on the set of The Voice last night.

Sugarland took home the duo video of the year honors for “Stuck Like Glue”, and Miranda Lambert took home one CMT buckle for Female Video of the Year for the touching “The House That Built Me”. Director Trey Fanjoy was named the Video Director of the Year for her work on both Lambert’s “The House That Built Me” and Shelton’s “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking”.
