Morgan Wallen took home more trophies at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards than any other artist.   

The annual Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) were broadcast last night (Nov 19) and performances and award presentations were hosted at various distinctive locations across the country. The award show is unique as winners are selected by their performance on the Billboard Charts. Nominees are based on key interactions with music fans, as well as album and digital song sales, radio airplay, streaming, touring, and social engagement. 

The BBMAs celebrate music from across all genres, and this year, the representation of country music artists in the mix was strong. George Strait, Jason Aldean, Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, Oliver Anthony Music, Zach Bryan, and more received nods from the annual awards show.
