Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, and Little Big Town Win Big at the 2017 AMAs

November 20, 2017

Keith Urban was a triple winner at the 2017 American Music Awards which took place live from Los Angeles, California November 19. The superstar won three of the five country categories including Favorite Male Artist, Favorite Song ("Blue Ain't Your Color"), and Favorite Album (Ripcord).

Urban revealed to Billboard how "elated" he is about the passion his fans have shown for his new music and what it has done for his career this past year. The 50-year-old also discussed his new song, "Female," and why it was so important to be released at this time.

The country genre was represented throughout the evening with Carrie Underwood winning Favorite Country Female Artist and Little Big Town taking home their first-ever AMA honor for Favorite Country Duo or Group.

So amazing!!! Thank you, fans, for this! I so wanted to go to the #AMAs just in case because I know how hard you’ve been voting. I’m sorry I couldn’t get up there and thank you all on stage...you guys are incredible and am so thankful for you! ❤️❤️❤️
