Other Nominees

Gabby Barrett was also nominated for the honor. The American Idol alum recently won the 2020 CMT Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year for “I Hope.”

Miranda Lambert was the other nominee. Lambert won the 2020 ACM Music Event of the Year for “Fooled Around and Fell In Love.” In addition, she also took home the CMA Music Video of the Year award for “Bluebird.”

AMAs Country Winners

The 2020 AMAs had numerous country winners. Dan + Shay took home every single award that they were nominated for. They won the all-genre Collaboration of the Year category with Justin Bieber for “10,000 Hours.” Additionally, they won for Favorite Country Song and Favorite Country Duo/Group. Finally, they also performed “I Should Probably Go To Bed.”

Blake Shelton took home the award for Favorite Country Album for Fully Loaded: God’s Country. Kane Brown took home Favorite Male Country Artist. Both awards were not televised during the broadcast of the awards show.

Although he wasn’t nominated, Darius Rucker gave a memorable performance with Katy Perry. The unlikely pair performed an acoustic rendition of Perry’s release, “Only Love.” Their duet came as a surprise and was announced just hours prior to the awards show.
