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.
