For Bryan, that meant victories in the Top Country Artist category and in Top Country Album, for his Crash My Party release. Florida Georgia Line won Top Country Song for "Cruise," sharing the prize with rapper Nelly, who appeared on the remix of the single, the longest running Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
