When presenter Cyndi Lauper finally announced Best Country Song, Musgraves couldn’t believe it—she had won! Lauper was so shocked she didn’t even pronounce Musgraves’ name correctly and was totally unfamiliar with who the newcomer was. That didn’t faze Musgraves. With McAnally and Osborne in tow, she walked all the way from her seat in the back—such a long walk that the transition music had to play twice! When Musgraves finally made it to the podium she was thankful, and all three of the songwriters were in tears. In her short speech, she recounted how the song came to them the middle of nowhere inTexas and how they were able to “tap into something really special.” Later during the televised ceremony Musgraves took home the coveted Best Country Album prize for SameTrailer, Different Park . This time she was more prepared, but still overwhelmed at the honor. Now a Grammy winner at age twenty-one, Musgraves was on the radar of mainstream America. Her rise to fame started slowly, but with one touching song, everything changed fast!
Watch Musgraves’s heartfelt 2014 Grammy Awards acceptance speech where she says she “poured herself into this album.”
