The award was one of two Carrie was nominated for, the other being her collaboration with Jason Aldean for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, which they lost out to Brothers Osbourne.
The singer-songwriter took to the stage at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas to share the debut performance of her latest single, Ghost Story.
She truly left the room pulsing with energy as she delivered a dynamite performance, employing her signature strong vocals and runs.
Carrie also looked incredible during her routine, donning a purple mini-dress that put her extremely toned legs on display, with crystal string-detailing on her skirt and a cape that blew in the wind behind her.
