Sometimes you spend entire awards shows waiting for your favorite artist to perform, or waiting for the biggest award at the end of the night. And sometimes, in between all those acts, you can’t help but be intrigued by the artists you’ve never heard of before.
I’m not a country gal (aside from maybe some genre splitters like Taylor Swift), so I liked listening to a bunch of country artists last night during the American Music Awards. Who are you, Florida Georgia Line, and why is Nelly involved?! I do love cuties Hunter Hayes and Carrie Underwood, of course, but who is this Luke Bryan? If you were as confused as me—or maybe you already love these artists!—have a listen to this playlist, which highlights the biggest hits of the country artists nominated last night. Luke Bryan, I want to crash your party.
