Kacey Musgraves won Album Of The Year for Golden Hour at the 61st GRAMMY Awards. “It was really important for me to bring my version of country music to a different group of people,” she said onstage while accepting the award.
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.
Musgraves announced her arrival in 2013 with the release of her major-label solo debut album Same Trailer Different Park. The album contained the hit singles “Merry Go Round,” “Blowin’ Smoke” and “Follow Your Arrow.” Musgraves was also on the pop and country charts that year as a co-writer of Miranda Lambert’s hit “Mama’s Broken Heart.”
She later won her first GRAMMY for Best Country Album for Same Trailer Different Park at the 56th GRAMMY Awards. She made her debut on the GRAMMY stage that same year when she performed “Follow Your Arrow.”
