Country music superstar Carrie Underwood earned the favorite country album for her 2012 release “Blown Away” Sunday night at the 40th annual American Music Awards.
In addition, the Checotah native performed the third single from “Blown Away,” the dramatic story song “Two Black Cadillacs,” on the awards show in Los Angeles.
