Nicki + Ariana
It is virtually impossible to accurately describe the emotional roller coaster that accompanies winning a GRAMMY Award … but I’ll try. The experience of winning the GRAMMY for Best Country Album at the 55th GRAMMY Awards was a bit like feeling overwhelming amounts of shock, surprise, excitement, nervousness, happiness, elation, and pride all at once. When Kelly Clarkson opened the envelope she stammered ever so slightly upon reading the name. The crowd began applauding before she finished. I just sat there and began clapping too — I honestly did not expect us to win. Kelly then reread the name clearly. My wife stood and started shaking me and excitedly saying, “You won! You won! That’s you! You won!” It was all quite the surprise…To win a GRAMMY for Best Country Album at the 55th GRAMMY Awards validates all the hard work, blood, sweat, and tears that went into making Uncaged. It lets us know that we are not only loved by our fans, but also respected and appreciated by our peers in the industry.
