The 2019 Grammy Awards fever is finally here! With some of the biggest stars in the music industry nominated, it can't be as exciting as it could be. Country music, in particular, offers a great list of nominees. While most of the artists are contemporary singers, we are still happy with the music they have produced.
For the second time, Kacey Musgraves wins her Grammy award for Best Country Song. The first time she won the same award was back in 2013. Her breakup ballad "Space Cowboy" won the Best Country Song award at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10. Although Musgraves was not on hand, her co-writers were. The acceptance speech of the songwriters was emotional, to say the least. Musgraves' co-writers, Luke Laird and Shane McAnally, shared the stage to express their gratitude. Laird teared up acknowledging his wife and family. Meanwhile, McAnally spoke first after racing to the stage. He said:
"Honestly, Kacey Musgraves is one of the greatest songwriters and artists of our generation. Just to sit in a room with her is an honor."
Just some moments earlier, Musgraves won her first Best Country Performance Grammy Award with her "Butterflies." It was announced during the pre-show broadcast. Aside from these awards, she is also up for Best Country Album and all-genre Album of the Year, which are to be awarded during the CBS telecast.
In total, Musgraves now has four Grammy Award trophies of the nine total nominations.
For Best Country Song, her "Space Cowboy" beat the other nominees including Cole Swindell's "Break Up in the End," Maren Morris and Vince Gill's "Dear Hate," Blake Shelton's "I Lived It," and Dan + Shay's "Tequila."
The 2019 Grammy Awards is live on Sunday, Feb. 10, and Musgraves is one of the scheduled performers.
