Kacey Musgraves Dedicates Best Country Album Grammy Win to Husband: 'I Wouldn't Have This Album If I Hadn't Met You'
Kacey Musgraves is taking home the prize for best country album!
The 30-year-old singer’s Golden Hour album beat out fellow Grammy nominees Chris Stapleton (From a Room: Volume 2), Brothers Osborne (Port Saint Joe), Kelsea Ballerini (Unapologetically) and Ashley McBryde (Girl Going Nowhere) at Sunday’s awards show.
“Oh my gosh. I never dreamed that this record would be met with such love, such warmth, such positivity. It seriously means the world to me,” she said during her acceptance speech. “I love country music with everything that I am and I’m very proud to be able to get to share my version of that with the world.”
The singer went on to sweetly thank her husband, Ruston Kelly, whom she married in 2017.
“Thank you so much to my family. My sweet husband is down here, Ruston. I love you,” she said. “I really believe I wouldn’t have this album if I hadn’t met you and you didn’t open my heart like you did. So thank you so much.”
She added, “Thank you Grammys, thank you to all of the fans who have done nothing but spread positivity and love about this album and you really gave it wings. It means so much to me, thank you so much.”

Musgraves’ win came alongside three other Grammy nominations this year including best country song for her hit “Space Cowboy,” best country solo performance for her love song “Butterflies,” and a second nod for Golden Hour in the album of the year category.
“This record is very personal to me. More personal than any bit of art I’ve ever made,” Musgraves told PEOPLE in January when discussing her nominations. “Also — so much great music was released this year. I really believe that art is thriving.”

“Being nominated alongside great albums that garner way larger sales numbers and radio play is extra special for me,” she continued. “It lets me know that hard work does pay off, and also that people just want to connect to music that makes them feel something regardless of what genre it’s labeled under.”
The singer took the stage on Sunday alongside Katy Perry, Little Big Town and Maren Morris to accompany Dolly Parton in an epic mashup performance.
