Carrie Underwood's awesome week got off to a roaring start at the CMT Music Awards.

Underwood won top honor video of the year Wednesday night for "Blown Away," capping the evening with an emotional tribute to Oklahoma tornado victims before taking the fan-voted award for the second year in a row. Miranda Lambert and Florida Georgia Line were the night's top winners with two awards apiece.

"The good Lord has been very good to me – well, to all of us in this room – for a very long time," Underwood told the crowd after the win.

Underwood – the top winner in CMT Awards history with 10 belt buckles, including four for video of the year – also is celebrating the opening of a Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit and five years with the Grand Ole Opry. She'll close down the Country Music Association Festival on Sunday night. All of this comes less than two weeks after joining the Rolling Stones in Toronto on May 25 – the eighth anniversary of her win on "American Idol."
