Country Stars Among American Music Awards Best Dressed [Pictures]

Sunday evening (Nov. 20) was a big night for country music at the 2016 American Music Awards. Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw came home winners while Cam shared her experience at the awards show with fans on social media.

Cam, who wore a beautiful floor-length yellow gown on the red carpet, was nominated for Favorite Female Artist — Country at the awards show. While she lost to Underwood, who wasn’t in attendance, the always sunny singer enjoyed her night at the show frequently posting performance videos on Instagram like Nashville hit songwriter Hillary Lindsey performing with Lady Gaga.

While Underwood wasn’t in attendance, she thanked fans on Twitter for voting her the winner for Favorite Female Artist and Country Album of the Year for Storyteller.

Meanwhile, Florida Georgia Line were on hand — looking dapper in black suits — to present as well as accept the award for Favorite Duo/Group – Country.

“This is extra special,” Brian Kelley said upon accepting their award. “I swear, this is icing on the cake for us. This is super humbling.”

He went on to thank their fans for making the last couple years “the ride of our lives.”

“Thank you for all your support. Our fans, you guys are everything to us,” he added.

Tyler Hubbard also shared his thanks. Specifically, to “the Lord and our Savior, for letting us do what we love. We never, ever wanna take it for granted.”

Meanwhile, the always stylish McGraw donned his trademark black cowboy hat while he brought along daughter Maggie to the awards who was rocking a leather jacket. McGraw accepted the award for Favorite Country Song for “Humble and Kind” where he thanked Lori McKenna “for writing down this beautiful prayer for her children.”

He also thanked his daughters, his wife, Faith Hill, and the fans.

“And all you fans out there who love music,” McGraw said. “It’s a privilege for us to be a part of your lives and part of your memories.”

Shelton won Favorite Male Artist — Country but was not in attendance. Instead, he also took to Twitter to thank his fans.
