2023 Country Music Peoples Choice Award Winners

Superstar musicians Lainey Wilson and Jelly Roll were two of the big winners at the 2023 People’s Choice Country Awards at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House.

During last night’s ceremony (9.28,) the 31-year-old singer took home the Female Artist of 2023 and the Collaboration Song Of 2023 for ‘Save Me’ with the 38-year-old rapper-turned-country star.

As she accepted the award, Lainey paid tribute to Jelly (who couldn’t be at the ceremony,) telling the audience:

“I wish he was here. I have gotten to know Jelly over the last few years.” “I just want to say, Jelly is one of the purest souls I have gotten to know, and I think it is so cool he has fans who love him for him.” “He makes people feel like they can be true to themselves and their stories, and that right there is special in itself. This is for Jelly Roll, y’all!”

In addition to his collab with Wilson, Jelly Roll grabbed the Male Artist of 2023, The New Artist Of 2023, and The Song Of 2023 for ‘Need A Favor’, while Lainey also won The Music Video Of 2023 category for her and HARDY’s tune ‘Wait in the Truck’. 

Another one of the night’s big winners was Morgan Wallen who was voted The People’s Artist Of 2023, and won The Album Of 2023 award for ‘One Thing At A Time’, and The Concert Tour Of 2023 category for ‘Morgan Wallen: One Night At A Time World Tour’.

Battling stomach cancer since June 2022, Toby Keith landed the Country Music Icon Award, and the superstar brought his wife Tricia Lucus to tears with his acceptance speech, saying:

“Bet you thought you’d never see me in skinny jeans.” “I want to thank the almighty for allowing me to be here tonight. You’ve been riding shotgun with me for a little while.” “Most of all I want to thank the fans for still allowing us to do what we do.”

Wynonna Judd took home the Country Champion Award, while Dan + Shay were named The Group/Duo Of 2023. 

Blake Shelton triumphed in The Social Country Star Of 2023 category, and P!nk and Chris Stapleton’s ‘Just Say I’m Sorry’ scooped The Crossover Song Of 2023.
