Luke Combs won the Songwriter/Artist of the Year award at this year's Nashville Songwriter Awards.

The "Beer Never Broke My Heart" singer didn't attend the award ceremony, but he thanked the NSAI for the honor through a video message.

"Songwriting has been a huge part of my life since I picked up guitar almost 10 years ago now, and to be recognized for that is a really awesome thing," Combs said.

He added, "It's been a really awesome experience and this is a pretty cool cherry on top of everything we've gotten to do over the past couple of years."

The Song of the Year award went to "Break Up in the End," penned by Jessie Jo Dillon, Jon Nite and Chase McGill. The song was sung by Cole Swindell.

Meanwhile, Combs' sophomore album, What You See Is What You Get, is set to drop on November 8.

Produced by Scott Moffatt, What You See Is What You Get features 17 songs, including the five tracks previously released on Combs' recent EP, The Prequel.

Blanco Brown's "The Git Up" has extended its reign as No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart to a tenth week and has also achieved the feat of being the first debut hit by a soloist to stay on top for so long.

The song, produced by Brown himself, first hit top spot on the chart dated July 13, supported by a viral dance challenge on TikTok and YouTube.

"The Git Up" is the first single from Brown's first full-length album, Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs, which is due out on October 11.

"I grabbed spoons, tambourine, anything I could find that made a nice sound," Brown recently told Billboard about writing the song. "When I got finished, it was so full of joy. I was doing the dance as I was writing it. I said, 'This is going to be a song that makes people dance and brings joy.' "

The single is the first Hot Country Songs No. 1 written, produced and performed by a single person since the chart began using the streaming, airplay and sales-based metrics to rank a song.

According to Nielsen Music, the track's U.S. streams dropped 7% to 19 million streams and download sales declined 21% to 15,000 in the week ending September 12.

The song ruled Country Streaming Songs and Country Digital Song Sales for a 12th week each. On Country Airplay, the track advanced 48-46, logging a 12% increase in audience impressions to 1.9 million in the week ending September 15

Brown's hit is the first Hot Country Songs No. 1 to lead for at least 10 weeks since Luke Combs' "Beautiful Crazy," which spent 11 frames on top beginning on March 2.
