Everything went to script Sunday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards until the end - when Luke Bryan pulled off an amazing upset and won entertainer of the year.

Bryan beat out some of country music's top winners, including two-time winner Taylor Swift, in an upset that few would have predicted. The 36-year-old Georgia native recently began headlining his first arena tour and was the co-host of this year's show.

After an emotional speech, co-host Blake Shelton held Bryan up and joked that he won in his "first and last year as co-host" of the awards.

Bryan is the first male winner of the award since 2007 when Kenny Chesney won the first fan-voted award. Swift and Underwood have won two apiece since then.
