Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan Win Big At American Country Awards: See All The Winners
Well! The American Country Awards, an awards show that somebody made up four years ago, happened last night in Las Vegas, with Danica Patrick and Trace Adkins (or, as they’re known in places like New York City, “Who?” and “What?”) hosting, and it was a doggedly country-centric affair. (That means less in the way of love for crossover stars like Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, and more praise showered on people who don’t get played on pop radio.)
This year’s breakout bro-country stars Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan led the awards, as Florida Georgia Line took home six statues (or whatever they give out at the ACAs), while Luke Bryan received the Artist of the Year award. Taylor Swift, of course, still got some glory, as her collab with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban, “Highway Don’t Care,” won three trophies, including for Song of the Year. Blake Shelton (another familiar name!) also received four awards.
