Kacey Musgraves Has a Plan for Displaying Her Grammy Awards
"I'm going to give one to my grandma...put one on the hood of my car," she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the 2019 Academy Awards, referring to the gramophone trophies as "the four little babies."
"It was so wild," she says of the recognition. "But very cool considering this album is very personal to me and it marks a very special chapter in my life—getting married, turning 30."
The burgeoning country superstar was on hand at the coveted ceremony to introduce David Rawlings and Gillian Welch, who performed “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings,” a song from the film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs that was nominated for Best Original Song. The award ultimately went to "Shallow" from the acclaimed A Star is Born.
Musgraves' appearance at the Oscars came two weeks after her monumental night at the Grammy Awards, where she won every award she was nominated for, including the all-genre Album of the Year for Golden Hour. "I don't think that a human knows how to feel the breadth of that kind of recognition, that amount of positivity and love coming your way," the singer continues, reflecting on her significant win.
"[I'm] very grateful, kind of unbelievable, it's like I almost can't even think about it...I want to just keep doing what I'm doing and stay inspired, but everyone to know that I am very thankful."
