LAS VEGAS, May 18 (UPI) -- The duo Sugarland won the prize for single record of the year Sunday for its song "Stay" at the Academy of Country Music awards show in Las Vegas.

Jennifer Nettles, half of the duo, told the audience the award is shared by the performers and writers of the song, as well as its producer Byron Gallimore, a man Nettles described as "part therapist, part magician."

"Thank everybody for believing in a song that's almost a 5-minute-long acoustic song," Nettles' partner Kristian Bush added. "And making that a hit on the radio. That's something that wouldn't have happened without everyone here."

"Stay" also earned Sugarland the song of the year award later in the evening.
