The American Music Awards were this past Sunday night, and although the awards show focuses on several different genres of music, it doesn’t mean the country music format wasn’t well represented.
Carrie Underwood took home her 8th AMA Award! She won Favorite Country Female Artist, and no surprise Luke Bryan took home the award for Favorite Country Male.
The show also featured a performance from the g-man, Garth Brooks, live from his concert in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Brantley Gilbert might have been the biggest winner of them all, taking home Favorite Country Album for “Just As I Am”. In that category he was up against Garth Brooks’ “Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences” and Eric Church‘s “The Outsiders”.
Florida Georgia Line didn’t go home empty handed either, picking up the award for Favorite Country Duo or Group.
Lastly, Taylor Swift was honored with the Dick Clark Award for Excellence. Be sure to check out the video at the top of the page!
