Country music was very much alive and well during the 2019 Grammys! Texas-based singer Kacey Musgraves managed to sweep four categories — including album of the year, the night’s most talked about award.
As she walked up the collect her award for her Golden Hour album, the 30-year-old was visibly emotional and at a loss for words. “It was unbelievable to be even in a category with such gigantic album,” she said in disbelief.
She also won best country album, best country song for her song "Space Cowboy” and best country solo for her song “Butterflies.” Before the night ended, Kacey performed her new single “Rainbows.”
Country fans were also treated to a stunning Dolly Parton tribute starring Dolly herself. She was the first country musician to be given a tribute in Grammys' history and she took the stage with Kacey, Katy Perry, and Maren Morris. However, it was Dolly and Miley Cyrus’ powerhouse rendition of “Jolene” that brought the audience to their feet.
Dan + Shay also scored their first Grammy and first nomination for country duo/group performance for “Tequila."
