Jason Aldean was country’s big winner at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. The singer took both of the non-televised categories, Top Country Album and Top Country Song.
Aldean was not on hand to accept his trophies on Sunday night (May 17). He won the Top Country Song BMA for “Burnin’ It Down,” the platinum-selling first single from his Old Boots, New Dirt album. Appropriately, that album took Top Country Album, besting the latest projects from Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert and Miranda Lambert.
The other songs nominated for Top Country Song were Bryan’s “Play It Again,” Sam Hunt‘s “Leave the Night On,” and “Dirt” and “This Is How We Roll” from Florida Georgia Line.
Aldean took the same two awards in 2012, making these his third and fourth BMA trophies. Like most of the awards, they were announced before the show. Little Big Town and Faith Hill were the only country performers.
