Lady Antebellum nabbed the 2013 CMT Award for Group Video of the Year for their uptempo hit ‘Downtown,’ a hilarious, goofy clip that saw the band members adopt drastically different personae. 

Even though it was not Lady’s first time at this particular rodeo — they won the award in 2011 and 2012 — the threesome seemed genuinely psyched to be picking up another CMT statue. Well, in this case, a belt buckle.

“This is Hillary’s maternity present come early,” said bandmate Charles Kelley upon taking the stage to deliver the acceptance speech.

“We never had more fun shooting a video,” the heavily pregnant Scott declared about the clip, which found the singer ditching her goody-two-shoes images, slathering her eyes with black liner, donning a leather jacket and engaging in naughty, get-you-arrested behavior in an attempt to be a bad girl.

She continued to heap praise on ‘Two Broke Girls’ actress Beth Beyers, who played her partner-in-crime. “Our co-star, Beth Beyers, she really pulled me out of my shell,” she said. “It was fun to do illegal things.”

“And be creepy cops,” finished Dave Haywood, referring to the roles that he and Kelley adopted during the vid. They played a couple of inept law enforcers and were hysterical while doing so.

Everyone let their hair down in that video — not just Scott. And that’s why Lady A picked up this award at the 2013 CMT Music Awards.
