Country music was well represented at last night's 2016 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, and Luke Bryan were the big country music winners at last night’s 2016 Billboard Music Awards.
Luke Bryan snatched up the ‘Top Country Artist’ title, Chris Stapleton was honored with the ‘Top Country Album’ distinction, and Thomas Rhett scored Top Country Song with his hit “Die a Happy Man.”

Rhett personally accepted the award and said in his speech, “This is incredible. Never in a million years did I think that being a songwriter sitting on a bus writing a song about who we love would win an award like this.”
