Now, we finally know which album won the People’s Choice Country Award for The Album of 2023. The award was not presented during the ceremony, but announced later on the People’s Choice Awards social media pages.
And the winning album is…One Thing At a Time by Morgan Wallen! It’s no wonder why it won, since it was a #1 album on the Top Country Albums chart and the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.
Based on how popular One Thing At a Time was, it’s no surprise why it won the first People’s Choice Country Award for the Album of 2023. Congratulations to Wallen and everyone else nominated in the category!
