Fighting back tears, the 30-year-old Musgraves said how she felt honored to just be in a category with the seven other nominees. She also talked about the importance of music in life and her life. “I would have nothing without songs to me. It’s just all about the songs,” she said, stunned and struggling for words after accepting her second award of the night and her fourth total.
After thanking her team she thanked her husband Ruston Kelly. “I love my husband so much,” she says. “This album wouldn’t be created without you.”
The last country album to win the Grammy for Album of the Year was Fearless by Taylor Swift in 2009. Swift also won for her 1989 album in 2015.
