On Sunday February 10, stars from across the country gathered at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate the best music from this past year and the industry’s brightest stars. Top country music stars strutted their stuff down the red carpet in an assortment of formal country wear including, of course, some cowboy hats and men’s cowboy boots. Walter Payne rocked a large belt buckle and Dolly Parton showed off a fun western dress. As a leading western style clothes retailer, we were impressed.
Country music has always had a reputation for being a category all its own, but in many respects, this year country music was in the spotlight. There were country music performances that rocked the night and country music Grammy winners walking away delighted.
Country Music Grammy Winners
It was a good night for country music and country music artists. There were plenty of country music Grammy winners this year.
Brandi Carlile walked away with three Grammys for Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Song, and Best American Roots Performance. She was also nominated for 3 other awards.
Dan + Shay, best known for their hit song “Tequila,” joined the ranks of country music Grammy winners. They took home their first Grammy award for Best Country Duo/Group.
The country music star of the night, however, was Kacey Musgraves, going home with four Grammys and a wonderful performance. Although competition was tough, Kacey Musgraves won Best Country Solo Performance for “Butterflies,” Best Country Song for “Space Cowboy,” Best Country Album and the biggest honor, Album of the Year, for Golden Hour. She also won Best Country Album in the same night.
Country Music Performances at The Grammys
Kacey Musgraves performed her song “Rainbow” on stage in a white gown as the lights behind her glowed all the colors of the rainbow. She later walked away with both Best Country Album and Album of the Year.
Though her hands were full with her three Grammys, Brandi Carlile performed her well-known song “The Joke.”
Dan+ Shay jumped up to sing “Tequila” as members of the audience sang along to the hit song.
Country music’s truly shining moment is attributed to the tribute performance honoring country star icon, Dolly Parton. Numerous stars graced the stage alongside Dolly Parton herself during the performance to sing and honor this country music legend. Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris, and Little Big Town joined Dolly Parton at different moments to sing a medley of her most popular music including “Jolene” and “9 to 5.”
The 2019 Grammys were, once again, a night to remember for country music stars, who were the center of attention in many ways. At Sheplers Western Wear, we are excited for next year’s red carpet, striking performances and the next country music Grammy winners. So, stock up on your formal western cowboy clothing as we anticipate this year’s other country music awards and next year’s Grammys.
