The couple were surprised to win the award for “Nobody But You”, which they were nominated alongside Kane Brown & Marshmello, Justin Bieber & Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi & Thomas Rhett, Nelly & Kane Brown, and Carly Pearce & Lee Brice.
“This is absolutely unbelievable,” Blake shared after hugging Gwen. “First of all, thank you Gwen Stefani.”
“Thank you!” she replied. “My gosh. I can’t believe it. Country music! What is happening to my life?”
Blake admitted in their acceptance speech that they didn’t they would win.
“I told Gwen, when I saw who the other nominees were in our category, literally it was like, ‘That would’ve been cool, but I don’t know what our chances of beating Justin Bieber are,’” he shared. “But here we are! So thank you so much… Fan-voted awards are, to me, the only stand-up award shows left in our industry it feels like sometimes. You guys are the ones who buy the records, you come to the shows, and you vote on these things. So we love you so much.”
