The Best 2023 People’s Choice Country Awards Performances, Ranked – Billboard

Here’s a look at the night’s performances, which included songs from Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Kelsey Ballerini and more.

On Thursday night (September 28), the Grand Ole Opry House hosted the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards, presented by Little Big Town and supported by fans.

The ceremony is designed to add a fourth major country music awards show to the annual Country Music Awards and will be broadcast live on NBC and Peacock, thrusting many of today’s top stars and timeless icons into the spotlight.

Blake Shelton honors Toby Keith with Country Icon Award for his decades of writing and recording “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” and “GI ” (American Soldier) and his work supporting children and veterans.

Meanwhile, Wynonna Judd was awarded the Country Champion Award by the Osbournes for her advocacy for mental health and suicide prevention.

Morgan Wallen, Lainey Wilson and Jelly Roll were among the top recipients. Wallen won the 2023 People’s Artist Award and the 2023 Album Award ( wholeheartedly) and a 2023 tour (for his One Night at a Time world tour). Wilson won the 2023 Female Artist Award as well as 2023 Song Collaboration (“Save Me,” a duet with Jelly Roll) and Music Video of the Year (“wait in the Truck” with HARDY). In addition to the 2023 collaborative song, Jelly Roll was named the 2023 Male Artist and the 2023 Newcomer, and his “Need a Favor” was named the 2023 Song. Dan+Shay named Group/Duo of 2023.

The PCCA also offers unique categories, including 2023 Social Country Star (Sheldon) and 2023 Crossover Song (P!nk/Chris Stapleton collaboration “Just Say I’m Reason”).

But as is so often the case with award shows these days, it’s the performances that provide some of the most impactful moments at the People’s Choice Country Awards. Here, we rank the performances from the show, ending with what we think were the most impactful performances of the night.
