Kacey Musgraves Wins Big at 2014 Grammys With Best Country Album
The 2014 Grammys were a huge night for Kacey Musgraves — and not just because she knocked out a dazzling performance. The country newcomer also won the award for Best Country Album, beating out some of country’s biggest stars.
When it came time to give out the Grammy for the genre’s top album, Martina McBride and Zac Brown walked out to present. But first, they gave a touching shoutout to George Jones and Ray Price, both of whom recently passed away and impacted country music with their significant contributions.
Musgraves was up against a tough crowd. Nominees included Jason Aldean and his album ‘Night Train,’ Tim McGraw‘s ‘Two Lanes of Freedom,’ Blake Shelton‘s ‘Based on a True Story…’ and Taylor Swift‘s ‘Red.’
However, Mugraves’ ‘Same Trailer Different Park’ was a powerful force, and she won yet another trophy for her shelf — her second Grammy of the evening!
“I got to make a record I poured myself into and I could ask for better co-producers,” the singer said emotionally. She thanked “all the musicians that brought this album to life,” and made sure to thank “of course, the fans.”
Congratulations to Musgraves on another incredible win!
