The three country artists enjoyed big wins during Fox’s American Country Countdown Awards, which are based on album sales and radio airplay. The two-hour live broadcast from the Forum in Inglewood, California, actually had more performances (14) than awards (12), but these nights are always about the winners — and those you can find in their entirety by scrolling down.
