Dan + Shay were the big winners last night at the fan-voted award show, winning Favorite Country Duo/Group, Favorite Country Song for “10,000 Hours” and Collaboration of the Year with Justin Bieber. Country Song and Collaboration were the only two country awards televised and their performance of “I Should Probably Go to Bed” was the lone country performance of the show. Dan + Shay won Duo/Group of the Year and Favorite Song for “Speechless” in 2019 as well.
“We literally did not expect to win this at all,” Shay Mooney admitted after accepting the award for Collaboration of the Year. Up against some of the biggest pop-songs of the year, such as “WAP” – Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion; “Rockstar” – DaBaby and Roddy Ricch; “Rain on Me” – Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande; and “Savage Remix” – Megan Thee Stallion and Beyonce; Mooney went on to say “it’s a tremendous honor just to be in this category. These are some of our favorite songs of all-time.”
Blake Shelton took home Favorite Country Album for his latest record Fully Loaded: God’s Country, Maren Morris won Favorite Female Country Artist and Kane Brown took home his third straight AMA for Favorite Male Country Artist.
“Thank you fans for all the votes!” Brown tweeted after the announcement. “Y’all got me here and y’all keep me here! Thanks for everything you do for me and my family we love you guys.”
