Apple has created the Apple Music Awards to honor achievements in music across five categories. The initial 2019 winners are…

Artist of the Year: Billie Eilish

Song of the Year: "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X

Eilish will perform Wednesday at the inaugural Apple Music Awards ceremony at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park. The event will be streamed live at 6:30pm PT/9:30pm ET.

Awards will also be handed out for Global Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

The winners for Global Artist, Songwriter and Breakthrough Artist were selected by Apple Music's global editorial team. The awards for Album and Song are based on streaming data and reflective of what Apple Music customers have been listening to this year.
