It's good to be Carrie Underwood these days.

The American Idol fourth-season champ was a winner once again during last night's live broadcast of the 42nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, where she received top female vocalist honors; saw her debut album "Some Hearts" take home album of the year; and was also honored with video of the year for "Before He Cheats."

"It's absolutely amazing, I was so excited," Underwood told reporters following her win, Reuters reported.  "It's a great night. I feel blessed."

It was the second straight annual ACM ceremony that saw Underwood win multiple awards, as her single "Jesus Take the Wheel" was named single of the year and she was also named top new female vocalist at last year's ceremony.  While she's since captured two Grammys; four Country Television Music Awards; two Country Music Association Awards; an American Music Award; five Billboard Music Awards; a People's Choice Award; as well as last night's three ACM awards, Underwood didn't forget to acknowledge where her big break came from.

"I would not be here if it were not for American Idol, " said Underwood as she collected her award for top female vocalist, according to The Associated Press. "Thank you, fans. God bless you."

Underwood wasn't the only former reality show contestant nominated in the top female vocalist category -- in addition to Underwood, the nominees other were Faith Hill, Martina McBride, third season Dancing with the Stars participant Sara Evans and first season Nashville Star third-place finisher Miranda Lambert. 

While Lambert didn't beat out Underwood for the top top female vocalist award, she was able to topple former Idol 5 finalist Kellie Pickler to win the top new female vocalist award -- the same honor Underwood received at last year's ACM. 

Also shut-out along with Pickler at the ceremony was fourth season Nashville Star winner Chris Young, who was nominated for top new male vocalist but lost to Rodney Atkins.
