Tim McGraw Wins Big at American Music Awards

Celebrates with In-N-Out Burger

Tim McGraw was one of the big winners at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Nov. 20).

He was there at the show to pick up his 11th AMA, this time for favorite country song for “Humble and Kind.”

“Alright, first I want to thank Lori McKenna for writing down this beautiful prayer to her children and allowing me to make a record of it,” McGraw said. “And Byron Gallimore, the best co-producer and best friend a guy could have.”

He also thanked his label, his management, and his fans. And then, his family.

“My kids, who are an inspiration to me every single day,” he added, while one of those children, his middle daughter Maggie was there with him, watching him accept the award.

“My soul soldier, my lover, my wife who stands beside me,” he said of Faith Hill.

After the awards, McGraw tweeted the quintessential after-party food: a double cheeseburger, fries and a shake from In-N-Out Burger.

Florida Georgia Line was also there for the show, and called their win for favorite country duo or group “the icing on the cake” after a great year of touring.

The duo’s Tyler Hubbard added that none of their success would be possible without God.

“We want to thank also the Lord and our savior for letting us do what we love,” Hubbard said. “We never, ever want to take it for granted.”

Other country awards that were not part of the live show included Blake Shelton‘s for favorite male artist and Carrie Underwood won for favorite female artist. Her Storyteller album also won the AMA for favorite country album.
