“Feels good,” Aldean said on the red carpet. “Over the years I’ve done a ton of videos. To finally be here this year and win for this song is…it’s pretty special.”
Having come up with the idea of collaborating with Carrie, Aldean was surprised to see the song turn into the huge hit it became, calling it “pretty amazing”.
The country duo also won big this year Maddie & Taewinning Group/Duo Video of the Year for “Woman You Got”.
“I prayed for this. Tae and I prayed for this,” Maddie Marlow says E! News after the pair’s big win. “God is good, and no matter what curve balls come our way, we win every time. It’s a huge, huge, huge deal for us.”
Presenter LeAnn Rimes saw the awards show as a chance to celebrate his decades-long career in the industry. Chat with E! News, she teased new music in addition to an upcoming summer tour. And when she’s not making music, the way she spends her time is very relatable.
“I’m at home in a tracksuit,” she revealed, “like everyone else.”
