This year’s Academy of Country Music Awards not only made big winners of artists like Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan , it also helped CBS come out on top.

The 48th Annual ACMs was the most-watched program of the night, with the show’s biggest audience in fifteen years. 2013 will also go down in history as the first year the ACM show had more viewers than the CMA Awards.

In all, fans cast more than a million votes for Entertainer and New Artist of the Year, with Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line taking home those trophies.
