Wait, Waffle House has a music awards?

You bet your ass they do.

If you’ve even been to the a Waffle House, you know that it’s more than just good food at a fair price, it’s an entire experience. Between the great staff, the people drunkenly singing Luke Combs songs at 4 in the morning, and that glorious picture menu that comes in handy when you can barely form sentences, Waffle House is a magical place. And now, they even have their own beer.

And they also have a Touch Tones jukebox…. that’s where the awards come in.

The Annual Waffle House Tunie Awards showcases some of the most popular songs from the Waffle House jukebox, and for the second year in a row, Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey” took home the top honor. Beating out pop stars like Justin Bieber, Khalid, The Weekend, and even Kane Brown, Chris has once again proved why he’s the best in the business.

Zac Brown Band won the Top Played Country Band, Luke Combs took home the Top Country Artist, and Lauren Alaina won Top Country Vocalist. Lynyrd Skynyrd was granted with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, while Kid Rock, a BIG Waffle House Guy, took home the Waffle House Legend Award.

“Thank you so much, to the Tunies, to Waffle House.” Kid Rock said. “I’m covered in excitement and that’s not even tongue-and-cheek….  Game Over. I won.”

Kid Rock even made an appearance in Bill Anderson’s “Waffle House Christmas” music video last year.
