Morgan Wallen, quite literally, cannot stop winning. Less than two months into the New Year, and already, the “865” singer has won prestigious awards. He has also broken Billboard records and even helped grow country music consumption as a whole. And now, he’s bringing home another victory. Morgan Wallen and his project, Dangerous: The Double Album, have won iHeartRadio‘s Country Music Album of the Year.

Wallen’s latest win comes on the heels of his pivotal ACM Awards win earlier this month. There, he, again, took home the victory for Album of the Year. iHeartCountry shared the news on their website. Dangerous: The Double Album continues to see success a year following its debut. No. 1 tracks include “More Than My Hometown,” 7 Summers,” and, Morgan Wallen’s latest single, “Sand In My Boots.”

The achievement marks another milestone in Morgan Wallen’s skyrocketing career. iHeartRadio‘s recognition for Dangerous: The Double Album highlights the vast audience the 26-song collection has attracted this year. Morgan Wallen qualifies as a country music artist, however, we recently saw the star’s double album become the most streamed album across all genres last year.

iHeartRadio shared news of Morgan Wallen’s Country Music Album of the Year win on Monday. The victory follows a historic three-night run in Nashville. There, he performed for tens of thousands of fans at the Bridgestone Arena. There, he was joined by HARDY, Jimmie Allen, Ronnie Dunn, and more.
