Thursday night (September 28th) the biggest names in country music gathered together at the famous Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee for the first-ever People’s Choice Country Awards.
Hosted by Little Big Town, the new award show has already created quite a buzz in the country music scene.
Described as “an award show for the people and by the people,” the People’s Choice Country Awards put the power in the hands of the fans and asked them to vote for their favorite artists, albums, performances, and more.
Numerous artists were honored during the event and viewers were treated to performances by Blake Shelton, Carly Pearce, Jelly Roll, Toby Keith, Wynonna, and more.
The PCCAs introduced never-before-seen award categories including The Concert Tour of 2023. A total of eight tours earned a nomination for The Concert Tour of 2023.
Blake Shelton: Back to the Honky Tonk Tour
Carrie Underwood: Denim & Rhinestones Tour
Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show Tour
Kenny Chesney: I Go Back 2023 Tour
Luke Combs World Tour
Morgan Wallen: One Night at a Time World Tour
Shania Twain: Queen of Me Tour
Zach Bryan: The Burn, Burn, Burn Tour
Each of these tours deserve accolades for being nominated for this first-of-its-kind award, but one rose above the rest in the eyes of the people.
In a portion of the show that wasn’t televised, Morgan Wallen’s One Night at a Time World Tour was named as the winner!
The One Night at a Time World Tour (Morgan Wallen) hosted numerous fan-favored special guests including: Bailey Zimmerman, ERNEST, HARDY, Parker McCollum, and Riley Green and broke attendance records in venues across the country.
The One Night at a Time World Tour had a massive response and regularly sold-out crowds around the U.S., so it’s no surprise why it won the first People’s Choice Country Award for the Concert Tour of 2023. Congratulations to Morgan Wallen and his One Night at a Time World Tour and everyone else nominated in the category!
