Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Golden Hour’ Wins Best Country Album at the 2019 Grammys
Musgraves gracefully made her way to the stage to deliver an appreciative speech.
"I never dreamed that this album would be met with such love, warmth ... I love country music with everything that I am," she said gratefully.
The singer brought the album's producer's Ian Fitchuk and Daniel Tashian onstage with her, thanking them for their efforts, along with her manager Jason Owen. She also expressed sincere gratitude to her family, especially husband Ruston Kelly, who helped inspire the album.
"I really believe I wouldn't have this album if we hadn't met," she said emotionally.
The country star's celebrated album was up against Chris Stapleton's From A Room: Volume 2, Unapologetically by Kelsea Ballerini, Port Saint Joe from Brothers Osborne and Ashley McBryde's debut album Girl Going Nowhere. Musgraves was also awarded Best Country Song for "Space Cowboy" and Best Country Solo Performance for "Butterflies" in a daytime telecast prior to the ceremony. Musgraves also participated in the tribute to Dolly Parton by performing a duet of "Here You Come Again" with Katy Perry.
Golden Hour was one of the most acclaimed albums of the year, taking her to Saturday Night Live and landing on countless year-end best lists. Stapleton's From A Room: Volume 1 album pocketed the Best Country Album win in 2018.
The 2019 Grammy Awards aired live via CBS on Sunday, Feb. 10.
