Luke Bryan dominates American Country Awards with 9

Bryan

Luke Bryan didn’t want the American Country Awards to end.

He cleaned up during the fan-voted show, winning everything he was nominated for, including artist and album of the year. His smash hit “I Don’t Want This Night To End” was named single and music video of the year.

“Mama, Daddy, (Jason) Aldean, thank you for a great year, baby,” he said as he accepted artist of the year at the end of the show at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. “They’re saying wrap (up), but I don’t want to wrap.”

Bryan won a total of nine awards, including two non-fan-voted radio awards. He hit the road on Aldean’s “My Kinda Party” arena tour this year, adding fuel to an already hot ticket. Aldean was named touring artist of the year.

Miranda Lambert won female single and female video of the year for the song she wrote with husband Blake Shelton, “Over You.” It was also named most played female radio track.

New dad Jake Owen took home the guitar for breakthrough artist of the year.

“I just had the most beautiful baby girl two weeks ago, and just when you think it can’t get any better, it does,” he said onstage.
