Country wins at the Grammy's

The 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards are in the books, with Sturgill Simpson landing the big prize of Best Country Album for “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.” Tim McGraw’s “Humble and Kind” took home Best Country Song for writer Lori McKenna, and Dolly Parton and Pentatonix nabbed Best Country Duo/Group performance for their collaboration on Dolly’s classic “Jolene.”

Meanwhile, Maren Morris also took home her first GRAMMY, nabbing Best Country Solo Performance for “My Church" and the late Joey Feek was also recognized, with Joey + Rory’s album “Hymns” earning the honor of Best Roots Gospel Album.

Overall, Adele walked away the big winner, sweeping all the awards she was nominated for, including the major categories Album of the Year for “25," and Song of the Year and Record of the Year for “Hello." In the other major category of the night, Chance the Rapper beat out both Maren and Kelsea Ballerini to take home the Best New Artist Award.

In terms of numbers, the late David Bowie matched Adele’s haul, winning all five awards for which he was nominated, including Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for the track “Blackstar,” and Best Alternative Music Album for his final album of the same name, all of which marked the late singer’s first musical GRAMMY wins. 

The most talked about of the night happened on the red carpet where a singer named Joy Villa wore a tribute to Donald Trump. The dress was designed for her by a gay immigrant who is also a Trump supporter named Andre Soriano
