For 60 years, the Grammy Awards have honored the best musicians, artists, albums, performances and songs from every genre. Considered music’s biggest night, the Grammy Award ceremony brings out the biggest stars for a night full of memorable performances and remembering some of the best performances and artists from years past.
Sunday night’s awards show was no different, except that country music artists were shut-out of the show’s major all-genre categories, the first time in years that it has happened.
Regardless, there were numerous country awards still up for grabs, including the award for Best Country Album. The award in the category has previously gone to Shania Twain’s The Woman In Me, Lady Antebellum’s I Need You Now, and the Dixie Chicks who won a record four times.
The 2018 nominees for Best Country Album were:
Cosmic Hallelujah – Kenny Chesney
Heart Break – Lady Antebellum
The Breaker – Little Big Town
Life Changes – Thomas Rhett
From A Room: Volume 1 – Chris Stapleton
During the Grammys on Sunday night (January 28), we learned who the winner was!
The winner is…From A Room: Volume 1 by Chris Stapleton!
Chris Stapleton is no stranger to awards shows! The husky-voiced singer has won so many in recent years that it’s possible he’s lost count. His Grammy win on Sunday was his second Best Country Album win and third overall after 11 nominations since 2009 when he was nominated as part of The SteelDrivers.
It was a clean sweep for Stapleton who ended Sunday night’s awards with an impressive three wins: Best Country Album (From A Room: Volume 1), Best Country Solo Performance (“Either Way”), and Best Country Song (“Broken Halos”).
Congratulations to Chris Stapleton on his Best Country Album win!
