Three-time ACA winners Thompson Square donned all black when they presented Scotty McCreery with this year’s Breakthrough Artist award at the 2013 American Country Awards.

Thompson Square walked arm in arm as they announced the nominees, which included Lee BriceHunter HayesRandy Houser, McCreery and Justin Moore. McCreery ultimately walked away with the blue Fender guitar.

He stood up and mouthed “wow” before getting hugs and pats on the back as he walked toward the stage. McCreery gave lots of thanks as he grabbed the guitar from Thompson Square.

His first big thanks? To his fans, of course, who he called the “best in the world.” He also made sure to thank country radio for playing his records. Lastly, but not least, he said he had to thank the Lord as he lifted the Fender award up proudly.
