Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, 5SOS Pose with AMA Trophies

One was the biggest name in country music before embracing a pure pop label. One is the current king of the country genre.

Both were victorious at the 2014 American Music Awards.

Taylor Swift and Luke Bryan, the artists referenced by the preceding tease, grabbed AMAs trophies for the Dick Clark Award of Excellence and Favorite Male Artist – Country, respectively, at Sunday’s ceremony. In celebrating victory, the two music industry heavyweights align with fellow winners like Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, Imagine Dragons, 5 Seconds of Summer and One Direction.
