Grammy Stunner: Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Golden Hour’ Takes Album of the Year
Kacey Musgraves was stunned that her album Golden Hour won the 2019 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. The night's big prize went to a country album for the first time in nearly a decade.
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 remarked. "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 2010. Swift also won for her 1989 album in 2016.
Add the Album of the Year Grammy to her wins in Best Country Album, Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance. She now has six lifetime wins after picking up all four she was nominated for on Sunday night (Feb. 10). The other nominees in the category were Invasions of Privacy by Cardi B, By the Way, I Forgive You by Brandi Carlile, Scorpion by Drake, H.E.R. by H.E.R., Beer Bongs & Bentleys by Post Malone, Dirty Computer by Janelle Monae and Black Panther: The Album, Kendrick Lamar.
