“Everybody in this room has made some kind of a sacrifice to be up here doing this, and I don’t know what it is for everybody, but I know that it hurts sometimes,” Chris said, noting he missed his twins’ fourth birthday to accept his awards, “But hopefully we’re all doing it so we make the world a better place, and the people that live in it will love each other and have a good time together and come together.” Chris Stapleton now has eight Grammy awards to add to his collection.
The other major country music Grammy up for grabs was Best Country Duo/Group Perfomance. Brothers Osborne took the Grammy for their song “Younger Me”. The song was written as a response to TJ Osborne coming out as gay. The duo also performed their song “Dead Man’s Curve” during the night.
“I never thought that I would be able to do music professionally because of my sexuality. And I certainly never thought that I’d be accepting a Grammy after having done something that I thought was going to be life-changing, potentially in a very negative way. But here I am tonight – not only accepting this award with my brother, who I love so much, but I’m here with a man that I love and who loves me back, and I don’t know what I did to be so lucky.” thanked TJ Osborne on accepting the Grammy.
Carrie Gets Grammy Nod As Well
Carrie Underwood also took away a Grammy for Best Roots Gospel Album for My Savior. “This is one thing that I’ve wanted to do. Literally, my whole career, I’ve wanted to make this album, and I got to. This just means the world to me,” she said as she teared up. Carrie also performed during the ceremony. She sang her latest single “Ghost Story”.
In other genres, Jon Batiste walked away with the most Grammys with five, followed by Silk Sonic with four awards. Congratulations to all of the winners! You can see a list of all winners on the Grammys’ official website.
