Bryan, who pulled off the surprise of the night, taking male video of the year for "I Don't Want This Night to End," reminded fans that he had tossed his jacket into the audience when he won his first belt buckle two years ago.

"I threw my jacket off the stage and it was really expensive," Bryan said. "I think it cost something like $4,000, and a lot of people were like, 'Why did you that?'"

This year, he went for something cheaper but no less startling. He asked presenter Tom Arnold to pull a pair of camouflage boxers, wedgie-style, out of his pants and tossed them into the crowd. He called them his "lucky charm."

Female fans went wild, even though the 36-year-old father of two is very much married. He even joked with the audience about throwing out all the bullets in the house before he showed his wife his steamy new music video.
