Country at the Billboard Music Awards

/ CISN Country

If you’re a Luke Bryan fan, and who isn’t these days, tuning in to last night’s(May 18th) Billboard Music Awards certainly paid off!

He performed not once, but twice – alongside Florida Georgia Line on “This is How We Roll” and solo with his latest hit “Play it Again” – and took home the first televised country award for Top Country Artist. ¬†Luke added another trophy to his mantle later in the night with Top Country Album for Crash My Party. ¬†Among the other country award winners were Florida Georgia Line, picking up Top Country Song for “Cruise”, and Carrie Underwood who won the fan voted Billboard Milestone Award.

The big winner on the night was Justin Timberlake who won both Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Billboard 200 Artist, beating Luke Bryan in both categories.

Perhaps the biggest highlight of the show was the duet between Carrie and Miranda Lambert on “Somethin’ Bad” from Miranda’s upcoming album Platinum, out June 3rd. Check out the performance below!
