LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Things just got hotter for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, country music's "it" couple.

Miranda Lambert won the Academy of Country Music Award for best video of the year for "White Liar" and Shelton won event of the year with Trace Adkins for their hit song "Hillbilly Bone." The first two ACM Awards were given out Saturday night at the MGM Grand.

Turns out it was Lambert who convinced Shelton to pitch the idea for "Hillbilly Bone" to Adkins.

It was the third ACM win for Adkins and the first for Shelton, who says the award finally makes him feel like he's been accepted in Nashville.

Lambert is up for five other awards, including album of the year for "Revolution," during Sunday's televised ceremony.
