Check out the winners of the 2022 Country Billboard Music Awards

Taylor Swift continued to be a popular choice in country categories in 2022 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday evening (May 15), winning trophies in the Top Country Artist and Top Country Female Artist categories, and winning Top Country Album for the new Taylor’s version from his 2012 album, Red. Swift also showed up in the all genre categories, winning the Top Billboard 200 Artist.

Ahead of the 2022 BBMAs, show host Sean “Diddy” Combs said Billboard that he wanted to “cancel the cancellation”, and to that end, Morgan Wallen and Travis Scott were welcomed on stage. (It was Scott’s first award show performance since the November 2021 Astroworld Festival tragedy, and Wallen’s first award show performance since he was filmed using a racial slur in February 2021.)

And despite a heavy-hearted mood after the racially motivated mass shooting in Buffalo, NY on Saturday, May 14 – claiming the lives of 10 people and injuring three others – Wallen has found his warm welcome back home. Not only did he perform at the BBMAs, but he won the Top Country Male Artist award, accepting his award with an acceptance speech that thanked his family and fans.

Miranda Lambert joined Elle King for a performance of “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, but ultimately failed to win any trophies. Dan + Shay had a great night at the ceremony, performing their cut album “You” as a last-minute replacement when the Red Hot Chili Peppers had to drop out, and winning Top Country Duo/Group during the show.

The 2022 Billboard The Music Awards aired live on NBC and Peacock from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night. Read on for a full list of winners from the show’s countries.
