Luke Combs Wins At Billboard Music Awards
The 2020 Billboard Music Awards were hosted by Kelly Clarkson on Wednesday, October 14th, live from the Dolby Theater in L.A., and aired on NBC.
Some of the top country moments included a performance from Kane Brown who teamed up with Swae Lee and Khalid to perform “Be Like That”, while Luke Combs crooned “Better Together” onstage.
Luke won the award for Top Country Artist.
“I know everybody out there has been through so much this year, I want to thank the crew that is working on this show tonight because they have gone through some insane stuff to make this happen for you guys. I hope everybody’s staying safe at home. Thank you so much for loving what I do. It never falls on deaf ears, the love that you guys give me. I’m very grateful for it and so is my team. Thank you guys so much.”
Cher presented this year’s Icon Award to Garth Brooks.
“Garth Brooks has had at least one top ten hit single on a Billboard chart in five straight decades. Knowing Garth, he’s set his sights on a sixth and knowing Trish, she’s gently, lovingly pushing him to his seventh. When I received my award in 2017, it was one of the greatest honours of my life and a memory I’ll never forget. To know that I was receiving the same honor as Prince and Stevie Wonder just added to the thrill of it all. And I know Garth feels the same way.”
Garth then delivered a medley of hits spanning his 30+ years career.
