View Comments

 

The American Music Awards honored a number of today’s biggest artists Sunday night (Nov. 24), from Rihanna to One Direction to Justin Timberlake. Right at the top of the heap, though, was Taylor Swift, who walked away as the 2013 Artist of the Year.

Swift also won the Favorite Female Artist award in both the country and pop/rock categories, and her 2012 release Red won Favorite Album in country as well (see all the winners below).

A few other country artists also walked away with awards last night. This year’s Favorite Male Artist in country was Luke Bryan, who also performed his recent hit “That’s My Kind of Night.”
