The insane moment was just a piece of Sturgill's sweet night, which had him taking home the award for Best Country Album for "A Sailor's Guide to Earth", beating fellow country standouts Loretta Lynn, Brandy Clark, Maren Morris and Keith Urban. The performance, which is spirited in its own right, was preceded by an introduction from Dwight Yoakam, who mentioned the late Jones before introducing Simpson with the Dap-Kings. The win, for his current release A Sailor's Guide to Earth, marks his first Grammy Award and was his second nomination of the night. Yet, on the night of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, he truly let his facial expression do the talking.
Lori McKenna's "Humble and Kind", which was written by Tim McGraw, won for best country song. She was up for four awards and won one. Little Big Town participated in a Bee Gees tribute, singing "How Deep Is Your Love", and introduced Katy Perry's performance with a great rendition of Katy's hit "Teenage Dream".
"My wife's dream was to make a hymns album".
