Lainey Wilson achieved a career milestone by winning her first-ever gold gramophone in the category of ‘Best Country Album’ at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.
While accepting the award for her fourth studio album Bell Bottom Country, the 31-year-old singer delivered a heartfelt speech.
"This is absolutely wild, y'all. This is my very first Grammy,” she began.
The Dirty Look hitmaker went on to thank her collaborators, co-writers, and "anybody who had anything to do with this record.”
She further stated, "I am from a farming community in northeast Louisiana, a little town of 200 people, and I'm a fifth-generation farmer's daughter, and I would consider myself a farmer too. And everybody that I surround myself with, I think they're farmers too, but they're story farmers.”
"And it's about getting up every single day and planting those seeds and watering them and watching them grow. And sometimes when you find the right farming community, you can have a harvest of a lifetime, and I truly believe that and I think that's exactly what this is tonight,” the Watermelon Moonshine singer continued.
Lainey concluded her speech by saying, "God bless every single one of y'all. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you so much to the Recording Academy, and thank you to my fans. I love y'all so much.”
