Country music made an impressive showing at the 59th annual Grammy Awards last night with spectacular performances and a few surprises, including first-time wins for Sturgill Simpson and Maren Morris.
Several country artists even managed to snag awards outside of the genre, including Joey and Rory, Hillary Scott and Willie Nelson.
Maren Morris, who had the most country nominations going in, picked up her first Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance for her break-out single "My Church."
“Thank you to the Recording Academy. 11 years ago, I went to the first-ever Grammy Camp. It was the first time I ever flew on a plane by myself to L.A., and it’s crazy to be here a decade later.”
