Country Stars Hit Vegas for 2017 Billboard Music Awards [PICTURES]
The country stars attending the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night (May 21) were looking good on the red -- er, magenta carpet and during the ceremony itself. Florida Georgia Line and Sam Hunt were among the acts performing at the annual event, while Billy Ray Cyrus helped introduce daughter Miley's performance; Jessie James Decker and Blake Shelton also attended.
Luke Bryan, Hillary Scott, Joey + Rory, Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town and more were nominated for trophies at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. Nominees, according to Billboard, were selected based on “key fan interactions with music” between March 18, 2016, and March 16, 2017; those metrics include album and digital songs sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring and engagement on social media, all of which are tracked by Billboard, Nielsen Music and Next Big Sound.
