Although the categories weren’t announced on air, Luke Bryan and Alan Jackson took home 2014 Billboard Music Awards for Top Country Album and Top Christian Album, respectively.

Bryan’s ‘Crash My Party’ beat out discs from Garth Brooks, Florida Georgia Line, The Robertsons and Blake Shelton to earn the trophy. His fourth studio album has been certified platinum and was the third best-selling album of 2013. Earlier in the evening, Bryan won Top Country Artist and performed both solo and with Florida Georgia Line.

Jackson won Top Christian Album for his ‘Precious Memories: Volume II,’ released in March 2013 as a follow-up to his 2006 release, ‘Precious Memories.’

“[We] had made a list of 30 to 40 songs to do for that first album,” Jackson says. “We had so many that we didn’t get to, I thought we’d go in and do a few more just the same way — heartfelt and simple.”

‘Precious Memories: Volume II’ went up against albums from Skillet, Third Day and Chris Tomlin, as well as a compilation album, in the category.
