Last night at the Billboard Music Awards, Florida Georgia Line won big as the Best Country Duo of 2021. 

Billboard Music Awards

Sunday night saw the best artists throughout the music industry at the Billboard Music Awards, with only a select few taking home awards in their genre. Nick Jonas hosted the notable event where The Weeknd won in ten different categories, including top artist. Rap artist Pop Smoke won five additional awards. However, we are more focused on which artist won in the country category. 

Florida Georgia Line beat out two other duos for the prestigious title as Top Country Duo/ Group of 2021. They were up against Dan + Shay and Maddie & Tae, so the win feels even better with the competition being that talented. 

Florida Georgia Line took to social media to celebrate their win while thanking fans. 

“So grateful to take home Top Country Duo/Group at the @BBMAs! Can’t wait to watch the show tonight #BBMAs.”

Fans of the music group commented on the post, congratulating the artists on the Billboard award. 

“My favorite country duo, congratulations!” wrote one user. “Congratulations, guys, you deserve it!! #BBMAs,” said another. 

Winners Circle

Other country artists that join Florida Georgia Line in the winner’s circle include more top names. 

Morgan Wallen won Top Country Male Artist, Top Country Artist, and Top Country Album for his Dangerous album. He was up against artists like Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Kane Brown, Sam Hunt, Carrie Underwood, and Gabby Barrett.

However, Carrie Underwood didn’t go home empty-handed. She took home the Best Christian Album for her recent My Gift track. 

Gabby Barrett also wasn’t left disappointed after the Billboard Awards. The 21-year-old artist was victorious over Maren Morris and Carrie Underwood for Top Country Female Artist.
