The GRAMMYs

5 Memorable Moments in Country Music at the GRAMMYs

Vince Gill wins the most GRAMMY Awards of any artist in the 1990s with 14 wins.  His total is currently 20 GRAMMY wins, the most of any male Country artist.

Lady Antebellum win 5 GRAMMYs, the most of the night, including Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year for “Need You Now” at the 53rd GRAMMY Awards in 2011.

Taylor Swift wins Album Of The Year for Fearless, making her the youngest artist to win that award in GRAMMY history at the 52nd GRAMMY Awards in 2010.

Zac Brown Band wins Best New Artist at the 52nd GRAMMY Awards in 2010 and goes on to win two more GRAMMYs the following years including Best Country Album for Uncaged.

At the 49th GRAMMY Awards in 2007, Dixie Chicks take home most wins of the night with 5 for their song “Not Ready To Make Nice” and album Taking The Long Way.  Carrie Underwood wins Best New Artist, meaning all 4 general categories go to Country artists.


Scandinavian studio gurus such as GRAMMY nominees Andreas Carlsson, Max Martin and Shellback, and GRAMMY winners RedOne and Stargate are the masterminds behind hits for global artists such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Pink, and Taylor Swift, among others. In 2012 Martin and Shellback ranked onBillboard's Top 10 Songwriters Airplay chart. And Martin alone is responsible for selling more than 135 million singles, with more than 38 songs topping 1 million units, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The success of these writer/producers marks a change from the late 20th century when Sweden was better known for its performing artists, including ABBA, Ace Of Base, Europe, and Roxette. But recently, Swedish electro-pop duo Icona Pop (featuring DJs Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo) have bucked the writer/producer trend, earning fame for their inescapable hit “I Love It,” which was certified double platinum in the United States and has spent more than six months on the Billboard Hot 100.
