Remember Country Music’s Five Album of the Year Grammy Winners?

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

The Grammy category for Album of the Year shows how popular country music has become over the last decade. Only five country albums have won this all-genre prize, but the format was shut out during the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Four of the five have been in the last 12 years. How many can you remember? 

Glen Campbell was the first country singer to win, taking a Grammy for ‘By the Time I Get to Phoenix’ in 1969. Next was the ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ soundtrack in 2002, then the Dixie Chicks‘ comeback album ‘Taking the Long Way’ in 2007.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss won a Grammy in 2009 for ‘Raising Sand.’ But the only album to win in the last 40 years that put hits on country radio was Taylor Swift‘s ‘Fearless.’ Her reaction to winning is memorable and priceless. She actually won four Grammys that night, cementing her as the biggest star in country music.
