Dan + Shay, Blake Shelton, Maren Morris & Kane Brown Win American Music Awards

The 2020 American Music Awards aired live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on ABC on Nov. 22. The show honored artists in multiple musical genres, including country, pop, alternative, rap and more.

On the country music front, Dan + Shay took home three AMAs, including Favorite Duo/Group – Country, Favorite Song – Country for “10,000 Hours” and the all-genre Collaboration of the Year for “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber.

“Wow, this is absolutely incredible,” said Shay Mooney. “Thank you guys so much, this is a huge honor. Thank you to our wives . . . our team, my two little boys. To the Nashville songwriting community, thank you guys so much for inspiring us every single day. There are so many great songs written in Nashville every day and we know that. So the fact that you chose our song means the absolute world to us. To country radio, thank you for playing our music.”

“This has been the toughest year ever [because] we haven’t been able to be together in person . . . But I just wanted to say, music has such an incredible power to unify us. Music has power to change lives, to save the world. So to all of our fellow artists and nominees, everybody creating art at home: thank you for doing what you do. And the fans—everybody up there [or] watching at home, thank you for everything.”

Kane Brown picked up the award for Favorite Male Artist – Country, while Maren Morris copped the trophy for Favorite Female Artist- Country. Blake Shelton’s Fully Loaded: God’s Country was named Favorite Album – Country.
