Last night (Nov. 19), Billboard hosted their annual Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs).
Morgan Wallen took home the most trophies with 11 wins including Top Male Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Hot 100 Song, among others, and Big Loud’s Joey Moi earned the title of Top Hot 100 Producer.
Wallen also performed “’98 Braves” at the Atlanta Braves’ current MLB home field, Truist Park. The energy in the audience seemed electric as former Braves players were in attendance alongside many of Wallen’s biggest fans to watch the performance of the bittersweet ode. Wallen was presented his 11 BBMA trophies by former ’98 Braves pitchers Tom Glavine and John Smoltz.
In his speech, Wallen shared, “Like the song says, ‘You win some you lose some.’ The last award show I went to, we came home empty-handed and this one—I don’t have enough hands for ‘em all.” He ended with, “You took a boy from East Tennessee driving a two-door Toyota Tacoma and turned me into one of Billboard’s top artists so God Bless y’all.”
Taylor Swift took home the coveted Top Artist award and a total of 10 trophies—bringing her career total to 39 wins. She now ties Drake as the most decorated BBMA winner of all time.
“The fact that you guys have given me 10 Billboard Awards… I’m talking to the fans specifically, none of this happens without you. Billboard bases everything off of what you are listening to and what you are passionate about, and I am so honored that this year you made ‘The Eras Tour’ so magical. You went and saw the movie, you cared about my re-recordings…I love you so much, I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have you in my corner and caring about the music that I make, so thank you, thank you, thank you, 10 million times,” said Swift during her acceptance speech.
Zac Brown Band was honored as Top Country Duo/Group, and Zach Bryan ended the night with four wins: Top New Artist, Top Rock Artist, Top Rock Album (American Heartbreak) and Top Rock Song (“Something In The Orange”).
