Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay both win twice at the American Music Awards 2019

Dan + Shay Carrie Underwood American Music Awards

The 2019 American Music Awards (AMAs) proved to be very fruitful for Carrie Underwood and Dan + Shay, with the pair both going home with two awards.
Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney were up for Favourite Country Duo or Group, Favourite Country Song for Speechless and Favourite Country Album for their self-titled album – winning Favourite Country Duo or Group and Favourite Country Song.
Meanwhile, Underwood was also nominated for Favourite Country Album for ‘Cry Pretty’ – which she won – and Favourite Female Country Artist, which she also won ahead of Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris.
The other outright country award on the night was for Favourite Male Country Artist and was picked up by Kane Brown, pipping Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett to the award.
The night very much belonged to Taylor Swift though, with the 12-time CMA Award winning artist – now very much a mega popstar – taking home five awards (Artist of the Year, Favourite Music Video (You Need to Calm Down), Favourite Female Pop/Rock Artist, Favourite Pop/Rock Album (‘Lover’) and Favourite Adult Contemporary Artist) in addition to being crowned AMA Artist of the Decade.
Elsewhere at the American Music Awards, Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus took home the award for Favourite Rap/Hip-Hop Song for Old Town Road (Remix).
