2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards: Country Winners List
The all-genre 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards return on March 11, with plenty of country artists primed to shine in their genre-specific categories. Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, Jon Pardi and Luke Combs are standouts among the nominees — each is nominated for two prizes at the show. Former country music darling Taylor Swift also amassed several 2018 iHeart Awards nods, and will be debuting her new music video during the telecast.
Combs started things off by scoring the award for Best New Country Artist, which was announced off camera. He pulled ahead of fellow nominees Brett Young, Jon Pardi, Kane Brown, and Lauren Alaina and noted "I just want to say thank you ... I can’t believe I’m here."
He was followed by the announcement of Rhett as the winner for Country Artist of the Year. Rhett noted that he was "completely blown away by this award."
