Taylor Swift and the Civil Wars won country music’s first 2013 Grammy Award on Sunday night (Feb. 10), taking home the gold for Best Song Written for Visual Media during the ceremony’s pre-show webcast. ‘Safe and Sound,’ recorded for ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, beat out songs by Arcade Fire, Birdy with Mumford & Sons, Katharine McPhee with Megan Hilty and Jason Segal and Walter. 

“WE JUST WON A GRAMMY FOR SAFE AND SOUND!!!!!!!!!!” Swift announced to fans on Twitter after the win. She is celebrating her seventh career Grammy. Additionally, she was up for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for the same song (Little Big Town won for ‘Pontoon’) and Record of the Year for ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’ That award will be announced during the telecast.

This win was a third Grammy for the Civil Wars, although the duo broke up in November  2012. Swift will kick off the CBS broadcast of the 2013 Grammys with a performance at 8PM ET.
