Luke Bryan snagged the big country award of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, receiving Top Country Artist.

He follows in the footsteps of superstar Taylor Swift, who won the award last year, and he couldn’t be more excited.

When Bryan’s name was announced, after the other nominees were listed (Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker, Taylor Swift, and Florida Georgia Line) he beamed and strode onstage with a huge grin.

“Thank you all so much for this,” the ‘Drink A Beer’ hitmaker said. “We are honored to be here in this room tonight with so much talent.”

Bryan made sure to acknowledge his fans, saying that he has “… so many wonderful fans out there that keep us singing, keep us on the road.” In one hilarious part of his speech, Bryan paused before thanking his booking agent, J. Williams, admitting he never remembers to thank him.

Congratulations to Bryan! He is also nominated in several other categories, including Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Country Album, and Top Country Song.
