It’s always a good time to be Luke Bryan, but last night (May 18) was even better when Leesburg, Georgia’s favorite son spent a good bit of time on stage at the Billboard Music Awards nabbing dual performances and twin trophies.

Luke earned the Top Country Artist win as well as the Top Country Album trophy for Crash My Party, and showcased his new hit single, “Play It Again,” in a solo performance. He also joined his country music brothers and Top Country Song (“Cruise”) winners, Florida Georgia Line, to perform their smash collaboration “This Is How We Roll,” which Billboard deemed “one of the most flat-out-fun moments” of the night.

Brad Paisley was on hand to introduce Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood’s performance of their sassy collaboration, “Something Bad,” before Carrie was named the winner of the fan-voted Milestone Award—one of the biggest awards of the night.

Alan Jackson was a winner, too, but in the Christian music category. He took home the trophy for Top Christian Album for his Precious Memories Volume II. Pop star Justin Timberlake was the overall biggest winner with seven honors, followed by rock band Imagine Dragons with five. 

Congratulations to our country music stars and all of the winners at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards! See more photos from the 2014 Billboard Awards show!
