To celebrate the tour, and last year's success at the BCMAs, where they scooped Best Song, they re-issued Somethin' About A Woman alongside new song Bad Habit. They never contemplated that just a few months later, in the aftermath of their co-headline tour with Gary Quinn, their latest release would emulate the success of its predecessor.
Taking to the stage to perform a medley of their best known songs and an insight into what 2017 holds at last weekend's BCMAs, the duo were overjoyed to find that they were not simply there to perform, but that they would be returning home with two new accolades; Best Song and Best Video.
Luke & Mel would like to thanks Steve Black and Mirage Recording Studios for helping to bring the song to life, ABC Visuals for the helping envision the video, alongside Beth Hunter and Jeremy Williams-Chalmers for bringing the characters to life. But most importantly a huge thank you to their loyal, loving and always supportive fans. A huge congratulations to all the other winners and nominees, without whom the UK country scene would not be as rich and diverse.
