Last Sunday, it was our New England Patriots who stole the show, beating the LA Rams in the Super Bowl. But last night, it was Kacey Musgraves who had quite the night in Los Angeles at the GRAMMYS… She won not one, not two, not three but FOUR GRAMMYS!
Before the show even started, it was announced that Kacey was the winner for Best Country Song for ‘Space Cowboy’ as well as the winner for Best Country Solo Performance for ‘Butterflies.’ She was then later announced, during the broadcast, as the winner for Best Country Album for her 2018 ‘Golden Hour‘ – which was also named Album of the Year at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards this past November. The GRAMMYS win came over great albums from Kacey’s peers… Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Ashley McByde, and Chris Stapleton.
But that wasn’t all! Kacey would also win the biggest honor… The GRAMMY for Album of the Year. ‘By The Way, I Forgive You’ by Brandi Carlile, ‘Scorpion’ by Drake, ‘H.E.R.’ by H.E.R., ‘Beerbongs & Bentleys’ by Post Malone, ‘Dirty Computer’ by Janelle Monáe and ‘Black Panther: The Album, Music From And Inspired By’ by Various Artists were the other category nominees. Quite the group of nominees, but Kacey prevailed taking home the honor. Prior to last night, in the history of the GRAMMYS, only 4 country albums had won Album of the Year. Kacey’s win is the first for country music in over a decade- since Taylor Swift took home the award for her ‘Fearless‘ album in 2009.
What. A. Night. for Kacey Musgraves. Big congratulations to Kacey and her team from all of us here at New England Country Music!
