"I say all the time; we all use the same notes, same chords, same words, we just try to craft them differently, and you put different instruments on it and you try to label everything. But for me, it's just songwriting - try to write a great song. A great song can do great in any genre and it'll be great," said Darius Rucker.
The award for song of the year went to Sam Hunt for "Body Like a Back Road." Ashley Gorley was awarded Songwriter of the Year.
