Grammy Awards 2019: Kacey Musgraves Bursts Into Tears With Album of the Year Win

AceShowbiz -And that’s a wrap, everyone! The winners for the last two categories of the 2019 Grammy Awards have been announced during the live ceremony which took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 10. Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover, who didn’t attend the event, took home Record of the Year for “This Is America”.

Ludwig Goransson, who produced the hit song along with the rapper, accepted the trophy in his stead. “I just want to say, creating music with Childish Gambino has been one of the greatest joy in my life,” he said. “No matter where you’re born, or what country you’re from, you connect with ‘This Is America’.”

Besides Record of the Year, “This Is America” also earned the “Atlanta” creator Song of the Year, Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Music Video. In total, Childish Gambino won four awards.

The biggest honor of the night, Album of the Year, unexpectedly went to Kacey Musgraves for her acclaimed effort “Golden Hour”. She was understandably shocked when Alicia Keys announced her as the winner of the category, mouthing “Oh… my…” During her acceptance speech, a teary Kacey didn’t hide the fact that she was speechless.

“Oh my God. I don’t even know what to say…,” she said. “It was unbelievable to be even in a category with such gigantic albums, really brilliant works of arts. Winning this doesn’t make my album better than anybody else’s in that category, they’re all so good… I really don’t know what to say.”

“Golden Hour” was up against chart-topping albums such as Drake‘s “Scorpion”, Kendrick Lamar‘s “Black Panther” soundtrack, Cardi B‘s “Invasion of Privacy” as well as Post Malone‘s “Beerbongs & Bentleys”.

Other winners at the 61st Grammy Awards which weren’t announced during the live broadcast included Willie Nelson, who won Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for “My Way”, and Beck, who took home Best Alternative Music Album for “Colors”.
